Windows 7: Desktop Keeps Displaying

Desktop Keeps Displaying

I have a user that says her desktop randomly pops up while she is typing. She also says that sometimes when she walks away from her desk and comes back the desktop is displayed. She shakes the mouse to bring the last active window back each time. I changed out her keyboard thinking that there is something going on with the Windows+D Keys but the problem still occurs.

May seem stupid but are you sure she isn't moving the mouse over the bottom right hand side of the screen?

It has to be something like that, but she says she is typing when it happens. I'll run this scenario past her. If this doesn't fix it I may delete her userprofile.

She also said her desktop icons kept moving to the left side of the screen after reboot. She said both problems started happening around the same time. So I checked "Align Icons to Grid". I would think that this is a totally separate issue, but maybe it's related somehow. At some time settings have been changed either by her or some app.

Think tbh she must just love you cause she seems to be making silly excuses to get your attention.

Dang! I hope not. There's about a 50yr age difference.
