I recently upgraded from QGIS 3.2 to 3.4 using the standalone installer (Windows 64 bit), and uninstalling 3.2 beforehand. When I open 3.4 it goes the background behind all my other open programs and clicking its icon on the taskbar does nothing, nor does Alt-Tab. To use QGIS I have to minimize all my other open programs.

Is this a Windows issue, a QGIS issue, or something else entirely?

  • I'm having the same issue, but my problem began after running OSGeo4W setup. Since that time I've tried forcing a Reinstall but this didn't fix it. – Corey Dec 14 '18 at 16:44

  • It doesn't answer the question but it does provide a little more detail since he used a different installer. Another detail, it is related to my profile. I launched QGIS with on a different account on this machine and it works just fine, the window focuses and comes to the foreground. I'd prefer to find a solution, but I may have to just wipe this account and start another one. – HeyOverThere Dec 14 '18 at 22:57

I had the same issue and I had to proceed to some deleting tests in the profile's QGIS3.ini file*, I figured out that the FastVersion plugin was at the origin of the issue. I uninstalled it and it works like a charm.

  • We talk here about QGIS Profiles (Settings > User profiles) and the file is "C:\Users\PaCha\AppData\Roaming\QGIS\QGIS3\profiles\default\QGIS\QGIS3.ini"
