The reason is some games cant open back up after going to the desktop. Skyrim is one. Some games if you wait long enough it will come back though. That will rarely happen on skyrim. If you want to go to the desktop on skyrim there might be an option to make it a window. Again might I dont know for sure. So just dont go to your desktop while playing skyrim.

Your welcome.

Why should it matter the reason for returning to or from desktop? Maybe he/she had a notification?

This happens to me as well.

The best thing I found to do is open up the console window by hitting the ` key and then alt tab out. That will stop the annoying 2 mouse cursor problem that sometimes arises from alt tabbing.

Second, when you want to go back in to the game, click on your minimized window "once" and then cycle through your windows with alt tab again until you land on Skyrim.

That usually fixes it for me. The more you do it during a session though the more likely it is to crash out, that happens to me as well. Normally around the 9th-10th time of doing it.

Hope that helps :)

I usually find opening Task Manager and selecting 'switch to' Skyrim, *then* cycling through Alt+Tab to the Skyrim logo works best.

Click on it in your taskbar then pres Alt+Tab

There is a fix for that double cursor-and a way to remove the blue border in windows mode. it is here:
