Problem with flashing taskbar icons and focus when swapping between applications
Posted on 2007-03-22
I'm stumped by a very annoying problem in Windows XP...
When running multiple programs, I click on the taskbar to swap between applications. However, instead of restoring the window and giving focus to the application I click on, the taskbar icon flashes - that's all. If I click it again it acts as though the program has been minimized. If I then click on the icon a 3rd time the window is restored and has focus. Any ideas what could be causing this? It just started happening on one machine and I have no idea why!
