Windows 10 Calculator app focus fail

BrainCrash asked on

When I launch the calculator with the button on my Microsoft natural ergonomic keyboard 4000 the calculator opens but it doesn't get to the foreground.

Then when I click the app in the task bar, the app show but I can't yet start to type numbers, I have to select the "display" field.

In Windows 7 I was able to hit the keyboard shortcut and start to crunch numbers right away.

Is there a fix to this?

EDIT: Another issue is that if you hit the calculator button multiple times, it opens multiple instances of the calculator. It would be nice if it just give focus to the already open one.

Hello Babu, Brian is not my name... but it's not a big deal.

The solution you suggested make me think you didn't understand the issue. Maybe I expressed myself badly.

The app works perfectly fine... I'll try to restate the issue:

If the app (calculator) is launched from the hardware button on the keyboard, the app won't acquire the focus and just  open in background.

If the app is launched from the "start menu" the focus on the app and numeric field is set properly.
