Games automatically minimize during cut-scenes - Windows 10

by delmalki   Last Updated August 14, 2019 03:01 AM

All my games are getting minimzed during cut-scenes when I don't press buttons and listen to the cut-scene. Usually, the issue starts after 2 minutes.

Long story, short story, I downloaded this app ( to find who was stealing focus. It prints on a command line the application who "steals" focus.

Big winner is SysWOW64\taskkill.exe

After a google search, can't seem to find the answer on how to disable this automatic execution of taskkill.exe

From what I understand, it's also a command line...

I don't want to remove taskkill.exe, I just want to prevent its automatic execution.

Misc info:

  1. Windows 10: Version 10.0.17134 Build 17134
  2. Dual screen
  3. Taskbar enabled on both
  4. Screensaver disabled, sleep disabled, energy power plan: high performance
  5. Latest GPU Update...
