I updated to Windows 11 about a week ago. On shutting down several programs (Firefox, Thunderbird and Calibre so far) the programs themselves close (icons disappear from Taskbar, processes disappear from Task Manager, etc) but the program window remains on-screen, unresponsive, can't be closed or minimised and it overlies any other window which opens. The only way out is to log out and back in again. Any suggestions?

The original problem has settled (mostly). If the program windows remain on screen then a two finger tap on the finger-pad closes them. I'm still having trouble with other windows. Installation dialog boxes fail to close and get in the way of other things on screen and various File Manager progress boxes remain in place near permanently.

@BillM10UK I too am having this issue (specifically with Outlook, Explorer, Teams, Zoom, all java UIs, and some others). I've applied all the updates available and nothing seems to help my Lenovo P52s (laptop/tablet). I am wondering what you are referring to when you say "two-finger tap on the finger pad". How does that translate to a mouse? Any idea?

@wjgray Also having the same issue on a lenovo thinkpad. I'm also unable to maximize the majority of windows. The program maximizes, however the dimensions of the application does not change. The border around the program just encompasses the entire screen, but does nothing. I tested this with a brand new C++ application I tested in VS and it still had the same issues.
I wish I could backroll back to windows 10, honestly.

is there someone who fixed that issue ? So I had the same problem, I fixed it like this,
right click on desktop , there is display settings, there you will see resolution of desktop and scale, if the scale more than 100%(125% or 150%) please make it 100% . Its helps me , i hope it will help you also, still don`t know why its have to be like that, and still updates not helping, only changing the scale helping.
If it will help you please replay, I will be glad to know that its helps.
And if its works for another`s , hello Microsoft, what about vacant?))))

@Arsen0211 I bought a new HP laptop with Microsoft 11 installed. I was trying the different solutions as I went down the list and the one that worked for me was logging out and logging back in again. I did it just now so I don't if this will last. If it doesn't I will post again.
