Windows taskbar popping up ingame

Hey guys,

at the moment I got much problems with drivers but the most things got fixed by help in the following thread:

https://community.amd.com/thread/255381 

But there is also another weird behaviour that is still there.

When I run a game and start playing, after some minutes randomly the windows taskbar is shown for a split second. Sometimes it happens again ones more some hours later.

Do someone of you know this and maybe have an idea how to fix it?

Changing ingame graphics like switching between fullscreen an so on did not help.

Its not a critical thing but everything that doesnt looks "normal" makes me sceptical and I begin thinking my card could be broken because its just some weeks old. All the issues I had in the thread at the top didnt made it better. ^^

Thanks again.

Bye

It's a windows explorer thing been around forever.

You can restart windows explorer from the task manager if it gets stuck over your fullscreen game or video but that's only a temporary solution.

Hey,

I really never had this issue. It did begin when installed my first AMD card (this one) because I was impressed by price and performance. ^^

Are you sure that you dont have an issue with your OS?

Re: Windows taskbar popping up ingame

It's definitely an issue with the OS.

When I said it's been around forever I'm really only talking about my own personal experience.

I have seen the issue of the task bar popping up over full screen stuff since I started building my own systems.

That 24 years, 8 or 9 new builds with clean OS installs, using a mix of AMD and intel CPU's and a mix of AMD and NVidia graphic cards.

The issue has been present with win 95, win ME, Win vista and win 10.

Re: Windows taskbar popping up ingame

The bug still exists in latest version of amd 21.9.2 is but the taskbar only pops up for about one second.
When taskbar popping fps drop occurs for one second and the frame time up rise to 150ms, the average frametime 13ms.
This problem occurs when "qtwebengineprocess.exe" is automatically started for a few seconds,blocking or deleting "qtwebengineprocess.exe" using other program does not occur again but it will cause radeonsoftware.exe errors
Test graphics cards: RX570, RX590, RX5700 XT (5700 XT replaced three new graphics cards to make sure there is no problem with the graphics card)

Tested OS: Win10 1909, 20h2, 21h1
AMD version: 20.4.2, 20.8.1, 20.11.2, 21.1.1, 21.3.1, 21.4.1, 21.5.2, 21.6.1, 21.8.2, 21.9.1, 21.9.2, 21.Q3 same issue

Re: Windows taskbar popping up ingame

I figured out that the game application wasnt in the front that was the reason why the toolbar was infront of it. i added the following line to fix it:

gameStage.toFront();

Re: Windows taskbar popping up ingame

Where to add it?
I think this is a RadeonSoftware.exe bug,when qtwebengine is launched in the background of fullscreen game, the taskbar pops up for one second, causing fps drop and frametime to rise to 200ms for one second.

Install the AMD driver only,the problem does not occur again.
Issue file qtwebengineprocess.exe version 5.14.1.0 executes the program radeonsoftware.exe

Retested version: AMD 21.9.2, AMD 21.Q2, AMD 21.Q3
OS: Win10 21H1, RX5700XT
