Steps to reproduce

  1. Open any window, e.g. Notepad.exe, put focus inside
  2. Bring ConEmu on top using a hotkey Minimize/Restore (Quake-style hotkey also)
  3. Start typing anything, e.g. ipconfig
  4. Hide ConEmu using a hotkey Minimize/Restore (Quake-style hotkey also)
  5. Start typing anything, e.g. Focus is not working :(

Actual results

The Focus is not working :( will be sent to, thus typed in, the ConEmu

Expected results

The Focus is not working :( will be sent to, thus typed in, the Notepad.exe

Nope, still the same. Is there a way I can help with this issue?

Same problem - Minimize does not give up focus.

Link to my settings, which I think are pretty close to vanilla.

There would be no problems if you show ConEmu on the TaskBar.

Showing ConEmu on the task bar doesn't seem to fix the issue for me

I wonder why...

Run ConEmu.exe -basic -run {cmd} and recheck.

I am also facing this exact issue. However, this does not seem to happen on another system I tested on, which has Windows 7. So I am guessing there is some change in the way Windows are being handled in Win 10 and ConEmu probably does not adhere to the same.

I ran ConEmu64.exe -basic -run {cmd}, and minimizing with the hotkey Ctrl-` returned focus to the original cmd window.

It looks like the setting that affects this is the quake style slide down setting. With it enabled, conemu keeps keyboard focus when hiding using the hotkey. With it disabled, focus is returned to the previous window.

What about ConEmu.exe -basic -quake -run {cmd}? Same problem?

Yeah, running with the quake flag, it holds keyboard focus when minimized using Ctrl-`

I'm on Windows 10 build 15063 (Creator's update) and version 161206 stable of ConEmu
