I think I’ve found what’s causing Windows 8.1 to keep showing the desktop during games! It seems that it’s a Scheduled task because it’s happening at 1 minute past the hour and 31 minutes past the hour. I checked the Windows 8.1 Task Scheduler and there are a multitude of things that are scheduled out of the box that could be causing Windows 8.1 to keep reverting to the desktop. Unfortunately I’m feeling too lazy to research which one could be causing my problem as it’s a Friday night, I’ve had a long week at work and have had a drink – I think I’m just going to play my game and relax tonight instead of try to get to the bottom of this seemingly intermittent issue.

If anyone does any experimentation with Scheduled Tasks, or has noticed any other patterns with the frequency that Windows 8.1 reverts to the desktop, please leave a reply!
