Win11 21h2 Modal Popup becomes hidden and blocks application

Occasional Visitor

I have found with one of my apps that have modal popup windows that if the popup is triggered when the main application is not the active application, the modal popup is layered behind the application window.   Then if I click on the main application window it is not accessible (because of the modal popup), but the popup is hidden behind the window and does not move to the top.  


When this happens if you click the application in the taskbar, it shows to possible windows for the application, one for the main application, one for the popup.   You then can select the popup to get going.   This is a showstopper for applications that trigger modal popups in this way.   Ideally when you focus on an application, the modal popups are automatically layered on top not handled as a separate window.
