If you are accidentally hitting the "windows key+D" combination on the keyboard that will minimize any application you are currently running.

When it happens quickly hit "windows key+D" again and it will restore your minimized application.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
