    Apps not going fullscreen


    I am trying to use an iPad as a second monitor by share screening a fake display. When I try to make any app fullscreen on my laptop monitor it just dissappears. I thought it might be because I'm sharing my screen, but it's not. Even if I just have a normal display connected, I still can't make apps fullscreen because they dissapear. Please help.

    :)

  2. Automatically moving a fullscreen window onto a new desktop

    Hi Joel,

    In Windows 10, there is an option to open an app in a fullscreen view. This way, it will be possible for you to make the fullscreen window move to a new desktop. Follow these steps to do so.

    • Right click on the application.
    • Select Properties.
    • Click on the Shortcut tab.
    • Beside the Run option, click on the drop-down menu and then choose Maximized.
    • Click on Apply button and then click OK.

    If further assistance is needed, we are here to help.

    desktop background slideshow resets when program goes fullscreen

    • It is build 1511.
    • I'm referring to the clock time on the computer.
    It is definitely not a particular app since this happens on all third-party applications that go fullscreen, regardless of developer.

    Apps not going fullscreen

    How to automatically dim secondary monitor, when app is fullscreen?

    i have fullscreen movies playing at the same time all the time - but his point was that in order to change the mouse focus, you pretty much have to minimise both, then bring up the app second monitor, do what you wanted to do-then bring up the app on the main monitor.

    multi-monitor doesnt play nice, since there is no way to get the focus off the fullscreen app on the primary monitor, WITHOUT minimising it

    (media remote works well for the movies, however)
