MS Office docs lose focus when opened from Everything Window

Post by cboshdave » Wed Feb 05, 2020 8:20 pm

When I double click on the file I want to open in the Everything search window, a word document opens for example. If I start typing in the word doc, for some reason, I get a few letters and the focus to word just goes away. No cursor, no typing, nothing. This also happens with Excel. If I open the folder from Everything and then double click the file from windows explorer, it's fine. This happens regularly. I can't figure out what would cause this behavior. I tried to search for a similar bug, no luck. It's not the end of the world, just a weird annoyance. Because I LOVE Everything!

Thanks,
Dave

What OS?
(Win10, I see a lot of lost focus [unrelated to Everything] that I attribute to, oh, the goodness of 10, doing all kinds of "stuff" that is unrelated to an OS working - properly.)

If 10, which version of it?

Please try running Everything as a standard user:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the General tab on the left.
  • Check Everything service.
  • Uncheck Run as administrator.
  • Click OK.
  • Exit Everything (right click the Everything tray icon and click Exit).
  • Restart Everything.
