Programs (Adobe Reader) open in the background instead of the foreground

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows Server 2019

We had a problem that Adobe Reader opens in the background when an attachment was opened in Outlook.


The solution was found in the following old discussion:


The solution we tried and worked was:


"Please check this link and let me know if this fixes the issue also:  Although it is for windows 7 it should work for windows 10 also. Please backup your registry before performing the registry tweak."


We changed the following settings using REGEDIT

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop.
Foreground Flash Count = 3

Foreground Lock timeout = 200000
