When running a batch process in Photoshop CC 2019 in Windows 7, the application continuously steals focus from other apps and keeps jumping to the foreground. Has anyone else experienced this issue and is there a solution?

It never happened with any other previous versions I had installed.

No Solution, but would be interested. This is a recurring behaviour in all cc versions on my machine (Mac) and very annoying.

Probably batch ran from script would solve this problem.

Maciej, We're not able to reproduce this on Windows 7. Could you make a video screen recording of what you're doing to trigger it and the behavior you're seeing? Thanks.

I'm experiencing this problem on Windows 10, to an even greater extent than PS CC 2018.
