Caused by

Window 10 release build 1809



Workaround in Windows Registry

See https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/win10-1809-pop-up-window-behind-main-window-same/993b0275-0bae-46a5-8acc-7bf363f153bb

Set Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\ForegroundLockTimeout to decimal 0

Maybe a restart of the PC is required for this change to have an effect.
