I just installed W11 last Friday.

The below window keeps popping up periodically and unexpectedly. I don't know if it's some keyboard combination that I'm unknowingly hitting or if it's just random, but I can't figure out how to stop it from popping up.

I'm pretty sure I'm not using that key combination - especially not as much as that window keeps popping up! It seems to only happen when I am playing a particular game.

Is there any way to change, customize or disable that combination?

Just a guess, maybe that game has keys configurations that's doing it?

That's the obvious question, and I'll look into that specifically the next time I play, but off the top of my head, I'm pretty sure I don't use that combo in the course of playing it.

If you post the name of the game you are playing someone might know what is triggering it.

The game is 7 Days to Die, version A20.

Thanks if anyone can help!

Okay. Confirmed: It appears that the window popping up has nothing to do with the game.

I had the computer on for a while this morning - no game. Closed the lid and left it for a while. Came back and the window was there.

Any thoughts?

There has been quite a few reports of that recently, as far as I can tell there is no fix yet. If it were me, I would put it on the feedback hub
