Windows 7 exit program window remains open RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I close a program like Windows Live Mail, the program closes but the window, an inactive window, stays on the screen.  To clear the window I have to go to desktop or launch another program that fills the screen.  This first happened with WLM but now happens with other programs.

  • Hi,

    I would like suggest you try to find this inactive window’s process under Task Manager and terminate this process for check.

    To open your Task Manager, you can right click the task bar and select “Start Task Manager”.

    Hope this helps.
