I have come across at least 2 applications that when on the Windows 11 (10.0.22000.194) Task Bar cannot be accessed by clicking their icon on the TaskBar.

  • VMWare Worstation - 15.5.7 build-17171714
  • 3CX - v16.3.0.198

ALT+TAB is the only way to switch to this open applications.

Anyone else seeing this in any other applications and if os please ad them to the list

    I don't believe this is the correct place to build a list of apps you're having problems with. Report the problem to the Windows team directly using the feedback tool so they can look into it. If you want to share a link to the feedback item here then go ahead but the Windows team isn't going to come to the Q&A forums to get bug reports when it is already built into the OS.

    Thank you for your question and reaching out. My name is Prakash and I’d be more than happy to help you with your query.

    I would suggest you to post the same on Windows 11 forums and also on Feedback hub from Windows 11 as below two urls.
