FSX keeps dropping out to Task Bar

Recommended Posts

Recently FSX keeps dropping out to the task bar. Not to desktop & it can be restored from the task bar, but this is extremely annoying. It mostly happens with complex sims such as PMDG 77NGX. I have tried running FSX alone i.e.no addons, such as Pro ATC & Active Sky, but it still happens. Any suggestions as to cause will be appreciated.  Tony Merry

Thanks guys. Done as suggested & so far no drop out. Any idea why this causes FSX to drop ou,t as it seemed purely random & not associated with changing views or anything else? Regards all   Tony M

I had  a similar issue some time ago, changing the network wireless card seemed to resolve the problem. Maybe a co-incidence but it's been ok since.

If another program takes focus in Windows that is called a task switch and FSX then pauses and minimises itself. The same can happen with an AV scan or many other tasks on a computer.

Might be a long shot, but do you have Citrix installed?

I do for school stuff and have never had an issue with FSX.

A certain version of Citrix can affect full screen applications (not just fsx). In particular one of the scheduler programs that comes with Citrix. It minimises certain programs at seemingly random intervals. In this case though, it seems like Citrix is not to blame. Carry on... :-)

Hi to JSKorna. Thanks for the explanation, it is now obvious why it kept dropping out. No problems since.
