Is anyone else out there using Pop!_OS 20.04?
I have an issue that’s driving me crazy. I have a habit of just clicking on the desktop to de-focus (or unfocus or deactivate) all windows when I am not using a particular application, so that stray keystrokes don’t get accidentally applied where they don’t belong. That has served me well in every desktop operating system I have used to date.
But the new Pop breaks this paradigm. I can’t just click on the desktop to deactivate all apps. After the click, the previously active window will magically become active again. Keystrokes get entered into the last app instead of being blocked.
Is it me or is this a design feature/bug? What is the advantage to such a behavior?
