I'm having an annoying issue with the Edge browser (version 85). Every now and then, Edge will jump to be the topmost window. For example, I had Edge open, with an Explorer window above it, when suddenly Edge popped to the top, hiding Explorer.

 

I haven't seen any pattern with this, but it's always Edge. Has anyone else run into this?

 

It's a very difficult issue to search for, as search results are 'polluted' with many 'Edge keeps scrolling to the top of the page' issues, which is not what's happening here.

Is it a certain page in common with the issue?  Any add-ins installed?  Something is stealing focus.

It doesn't seem to be related to any specific page, but I'll try to keep a log of what's open when it happens.

 

I've already removed all 'extensions' and I don't have any 'apps' installed; are 'add-ins' something else or just those?

 

That link is from 2018 and presumably refers to the old version of Edge, and in any case it seems that it's stuck on top rather than randomly popping up.

Use the Feedback Hub in Windows to put the info in front of MS...  They do use that info for product enhancements.  Unless it's by design of course. Which would be dumb.

I'll make a little log and see whether I can track down the specific site before giving feedback, but that's a good tip. I wonder whether they'll actually act on it through!

In typical fashion, despite happening for weeks before I made this thread, the issue hasn't occurred even once since I said I'd keep a site log. Edge is still version 85 so I wonder what's changed.

 

Maybe posting this grizzle will make it happen again :P
