Win mail and Visual Studio opening windows in the background

If I open Windows Mail and click the calendar, the calendar opens on the taskbar, not on the screen. This did not used to happen. Also, when you run a C++ program in Visual Studio, the Console opens on the task bar and not on the screen like it used to do. This is has been happening in about the last month only. What has changed and how do I fix it.

Hi,
You mentioned that the issued occurred about the last month.
Firstly, check for update. If you could find new security updates, please install them to check.
Then you could create a new user account. Log on the new user account to check if the issue still insists. This could make sure your have a new user profile.
At last, you could modify the registry below:
1. Go to start and type regedit.exe.
2. Navigate to the following location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop.
3. Double click the 'ForegroundLockTimeout' key. Change the notation to decimal.
4. The default value should be 200000 millisecond in decimal, or 200 seconds. Click OK.
5. Restart your computer
Hope this helps and please help to accept as Answer if the response is useful.
Best Regards,
Carl
