    Welcome to the forums @Traance :).

    When the desktop appears, are there any alerts that appear or other applications running? It sounds like something is taking focus from a game, which it shouldn't normally do. Can you try playing a game with no other apps running and everything in the system tray (printer utilities, etc...) all closed.

    The other possibility is that you could be accidentally hitting the Windows key during gaming?

    Thank you,

    Well i have solved my issues by reseting windows ( partial format and reinstallation)
    in my issue I have closed everything except one game for instance and it didnt work.
    My hypothesis is a tiers part processus took me back by over exploiting the processor.
    after reset nothing happenned again, so i guess it was link to windows.
