Messages open in background when I click on notification

Hello there, on windows 10 when I get a new message notification I click on it to read the incoming message, but the message window always opens in the background, behind all my other windows.

Is there a way to get them to open on top of my other windows so i can read them straight away? I have searched the support pages and forums but can’t find the topic anywhere.

Many thanks in advance.

Thanks for following up, I have briefly tested with some incoming messages since updating to latest version and it seems to work as expected now.

Unfortunately this has not fixed the problem for me.

Hello, spoke too soon. It did appear to work a few times after the update, but now all messages are opening in the background again…

Hello, I have the same issue since Ver 8 install. Clicking on Windows 10 notification used to open the new message, but now it just flashes the icon on my toolbar. I have version 8.0.3385.
