I did a search for Adonai in All Bibles.

Went off to do some other stuff in other apps while that was running. I tried to switch back to Logos after a few minutes to see what the results were, using Alt+Tab.

Logos would not accept focus back and the focus popped back to my web browser which was the other app I was using at the time.

I was at least able to hold down Alt+Tab and see from Windows Explorer's preview of the Logos window that the search had completed (it look over 47 seconds, which is pretty slow, IMO, but it was done). Alas, I neglected to take a screenshot.

Still couldn't bring the focus back to Logos.

I had to force Logos to shut down by right-clicking on its icon in the task bar and choosing Close All Windows.

Log attached.

I know that you prefer Alt-Tab, but what happens if you use the Taskbar icon to switch focus?

Logos logs won't reveal much in that regard, but where is your Performance Log (Perflog) that was also running/started during the search?

Multiple searches were being performed during the time of the Adonai search e.g. two earlier searches took over 2 min each, and there were SQLite messages indicating slow performance. CPU usage from Task Manager would be useful.

I tried Taskbar too, and wasn't able to get Logos to come to the top again at all. Perhaps if I'd waited patiently until other tasks in Logos had finished it would have worked.

I'm away on vacation for the remainder of this week, so I don't have access to my home machine. Will try to remember to test this out again after a clean boot of my computer and get Task Manager screenshots after I return from my trip.
