    Does anyone else have this happening when you are idle? I dont think its suposed to show a cmd window and just run in the background. I move my pointer or hit the min window button and it goes away and then comes back a few times. How do I make this stop poping up if this is not a bug?

    It is not in Windows 10 build 10240. I read it has been in three other builds after 10240.

    Nobody knows, what is it?
    Is it normal?
    Can we stop it?

    You can see what it is capable of and it's predefined modes in CMD as admin. " dfp /? "
