Yes I saw it in 7 till I turned the damn thing off completely!

Why is it that these days so many windows or alerts seem to not take the focus any more?

A few people have been having trouble with the UAC dialog - the dialog
which Windows pops up when you install anything - often this dialog seems
to pop up behind every other window and you need to either ALT+TAB through
everything, or press ALT+SHIFT+TAB to get to it.

Some users have reported that the dialog doesn't always read correctly,
even on an installed copy of NVDA. I haven't replicated that or seen a
solution at this stage.

Could you mind pasting the log fragment here, as this forum does not

Hello all,

A friend of mine has reported to me that his copy of NVDA (the stable
release) fails to update. I think he tried to update from 2018.1 to
2018.1.1 and then to 2018.2 and each time NVDA fails to update and tells
him to check the log file for details. I'm attaching the log file to this
message - hope it helps to diagnose what is the problem in this case.

Thanks much in advance!

Best wishes,
Kostadin Kolev
