How do I prevent minimizing Matlab windows after calling uigetdir?

Just to clarify, this part of my code works. However, when I run the mlapp and use the function that uses uigetdir, after I select the folder, all Matlab windows minimize. Is there a solution?
Thank you for your help.

I think this could be the same problem as: Appdesigner window ends up in background after uigetfile
I'm struggling with the same thing in my app. Right now I'm using Chris McRaven's workaround from above mentioned link; set visibility of figure to 'off' and then 'on' again. It's not the best solution, because window will still blink for a brief moment, but it's still better than nothing.

Even thought this is not the correct solution. But it will work.
[file, path]= uigetfile('*.*');
fN = fullfile(path,file);
figure(app.UIFigure); % magic command :)
