    I upgraded to Windows 10 when it first came out, and everything has been fin until recently. It feels like most everything I click on has a 1 in 20 chance of just closing itself with no error message. In Edge for instance if I double click on the top part to full-screen the page a message pops up asking if I would like to close all tabs, this message could pop up any time I click anywhere but it occurs 100% of the time if I double click the top.

    League of Legends clients will flicker on the taskbar as if something is trying to close the program but failing, and occasionally it will close itself with no warning, same with a lot of Steam games, any other browsers, or most programs I try. I just recently reset my computer attempting to fix the issue but the problem is still there, any help is greatly appreciated

    Start Task Manager from the taskbar, click on More details if it is showing no tabs. Then click on the Startup tab. Disable all programs there from auto starting and see if the problem continues.

    I tried that with no luck, and I also found that maximizing or dragging windows to resize them has an effect on it closing randomly as well. Could this be a problem with my mouse?

    Are you on a laptop? Maybe yoru touch pad is being too sensitve. You may be able to disable that in Control Panel to test.
