Windows 10 App minimizes and pauses when other windows are closed/minimized.

When I close or minimize other windows while a video is playing in the Windows 10 App, the playing video pauses and the window is closed.

    I am having the same problem, although it happens whenever I click on any other windows, not just when minimizing or closing them. This is a real problem when trying to watch a movie on one monitor while working on another. I should note that this only happens when the Plex app is maximized.

    I'm having this issue too, though it's intermittent. It's not very time I click on a window on my other screen, it seems to be happening randomly.

    It's happening whenever I click on an icon on the plex forums website (see picture for icons next to user name)

    Happens everytime i minimize the app. Has nothing to do with other apps. //kenifyable

    I have the same issue whenever I launch a program from the task bar using the context menu.
