Windows 7: Pictures open behind active window

Pictures open behind active window

Hey all, again^^ Seems that troubles haunt me no matter what I do..

Recently, the very first picture I open in a folder opens behind the folder, which is slightly annoying. Note that I am saying first picture, since if I open another picture it opens as it should, in front of the folder.

Any possibly solutions to this? :/

It is all folders or just one folder?

Do you have more than one user account? If so, try the same thing from that account (or create one to try), and see if that account works ok. You may need to run System File Checker (SFC).

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

It will disable any 3rd party themes you have installed. Always a good idea to make a restore point 1st. A Guy

Several folders. It seems to be only an issue sometimes, and sometimes it opens as it should.

Running the check eliminated the issue, thank you! I hope it wont come back now x)
I should note down that command and run it next time before asking^^

I hesitate to use SFC as a rote answer, but it will correctly register system files that have become corrupted or have been modified. I know if you have 3rd party themes (not digitally signed by MS), they will stop working until you again patch your system to accept unsigned themes. It will certainly undo other (tweaks) that may have been made as well. But it does seem to fix many weird display/functionality issues. Glad you got it fixed. A Guy
