Kind of a weird issue but I'm on Win 11 and once I launch any of the Adobe products my Window's task bar is viewable and clickable but when I click on any other program it will not become the active screen. I have to use show destop and then I can open the programs from the task bar as normal.

After installing, did you restart your computer?

Can you launch apps from Windows Start Menu?

Restarted many times, all updates are in for programs and PC. I can launch from Start and the Start button works but the other active programs do not come into focus. Never was an issue with Win 10, just seems to be an issue with Win 11.

Same for me with Windows 11, realy annoying as I have to minimise the Adobe program to open anything else. Does it on all, Photoshop, InDesign etc.

@ecogmedia and @duncanp18666306,

This is a known problem.  The solution seems to be disabling "focus assist" in Windows settings.

Try it and report back with your results.

Thanks for reply. Focus Assist was not on with my PC, I disabled everything on that page but no difference. The problem of switching to other Apps only happens the first time after opening an Adobe program. Once I have managed to focus Outlook by minimising Adobe window it will behave as expected and I can flick between all Apps
