I have a Lenovo Ideapad 320, and within the past week, I have noticed that while I am typing (either in Word or Internet), my words will stop appearing and it is because my window has become inactive. I will have to click the area of where I am typing to active the current window and continue typing. Even now, it has done it twice.
At first, I thought I was accidently pressing the touchpad with my thumb or other part of my hand; however, these past several days I have been conscience of that fact and have not done it, yet it still becomes in active. While being aware of this matter, I have watched the indication of the active window - and like just now, my Microsoft Edge icon will blink - removing the indication that it is active.
While typing this message, my Microsoft Edge has become inactive four (4) times. It is become very frustrating, and I don't know what has caused this ~ as I have not downloaded any new programs.
I have read on a Google search that this has happened to other people, but was unsuccesful in my search for this particular laptop. I have only had this since March, and again this is a new problem that has only started recently. Any help or suggestions on where to look would be greatly appreciated.

You mentioned Norton. Is Norton doing a scan or updating at the time?
On your Lenovo Ideapad 320 have you installed a Windows Feature update or any other update?
I am not employed by Lenovo or Microsoft. I am a volunteer.

Thank you so much for your question. Regarding my Norton - no, it is not completing any updates for viruses or anything of the matter. However, regarding your other question...i have noticed during the past several days that when I click to shut down my computer, I have constantly seen "Update and Shut Down" - even though I have completed this action countless times.
