When I install Razer Synapse on any PC, whether Windows 10 or Windows 11, I am no longer able to click on items on the Windows task bar. I can’t click the start button or change focus of opened applications, clicks don’t seem to register when clicking anything on the task bar. If I press the windows button, the start menu does open, and if I press ALT-TAB, I can still change focus of apps, so windows is not frozen; it’s just clicking anything on the task bar that is the issue.
If I uninstall Synapse, the problem goes away. I can reproduce this at will on multiple PCs. I can’t imagine I”m the only person with this problem, yet I don’t see much about it here, but I do see other complaints when searching the web with no solution. This is rendering my $300 keyboard useless since I can’t install the software required to actually use it. And no, I did not create any macros or change any settings to cause this.
