    open apps that are active lose focus in seconds in w.8.1

    Hi In w 8.1 If I open an app within seconds it loses focus. It makes it very difficult to type ie in e mail, the only way to get focus is to left click the mouse within the app and the cursor comes back for a few letters then the cursor disapears again. So any time I make an app active it becomes inactive quickly. To make it active again I have to click on it with my mouse.
    As you can imagine it makes 8.1 imposible to use.
    Any help would be appreciated
