Restored browser window lacks keyboard focus

This is a pretty specific problem, but it is 100% reproducible for me - and pretty annoying.

If I minimize my browser window to the taskbar, then restore it, it doesn't have keyboard focus. I have to click in the window (or alt-tab to it) in order for the keyboard to be able to interact with the app.

The problem is pretty specific: It has to be a chromium-based web browser (Chrome/Opera/Vivaldi), running on the second monitor, with multi-monitor taskbars enabled, restored by clicking the taskbar icon - or getting opened by another app launching a web page.

If any factors are different from that specific list, keyboard focus is restored normally: minimize to first window instead of second, use a non-chromium browser like Firefox, disable multi-monitor taskbar... any of those changes cause things to work properly.

The latest DisplayFusion update had an advanced setting that seemed like it was specifically intended to address this:

Fix: Enabling the "Disallow TopMost Calls" Advanced Setting should now resolve any issues with windows not focusing properly when using left/right side taskbars

But it doesn't seem to have any affect on this issue. Is there some other setting I need to try?

I'll do some testing with this here to see what I can find out. Could you send me a copy of your troubleshooting info? Here are the steps:

  • Open the Settings > Troubleshooting tab

Great, once it's reproducible the mystery's days are numbered!
