This started happening after some windows update (gg, Microsoft!): whenever I copy/move/delete files, the transfer window is always behind all other windows.

Is there any way to fix that?

That is most probably the so called "z order" :w00t: it is a known issue, see:

I don't think that there is (yet) a completely fixed update. :(

Well, great. I have removed those 4 updates, restarted, and nothing has changed. I guess the damage is already done.

 

edit: actually, it seems it is working again now. Maybe on my other try something has stolen the focus, since it was right after the restart. Thanks for the tip jaclaz!

Now if only you'd point me to the update that broke autologin with a blank password...  ;)

this is by design. I already asked this Microsoft some time ago.

 

It also annoys me, too.
