  2. Why are my games minimizing when there is no mouse activity or minimizing randomly?

    Some issues with minimizing and maximizing games

    Im trying the focus assist option right now, i will get back with the results.

    Alright, so turning focus assist off seems to have reduced the time it takes for my games to minimize and maximize, but i still get the annoying messagebox in the top left corner of the screen. I would also like if all my games would minimize and maximize instantly, but its a step in the right direction.

    Also, my games are running in exclusive fullscreen mode.

    Windows 10 games minimizes periodically

    Hello,

    To understand the issue better, I would like to ask some questions:

    • Is the issue particular to a game or all games?
    • Do you get any error message?
    • Which build is installed in your computer?
    • Is the issue occurring with Windows Store games?

    I suggest you to update the Graphic card driver by following the steps provided below and check if it helps.

    • Press Windows key + X and select Device Manager.
    • Expand Display Adapters.
    • Right click on the driver and select Update Driver Software.
    • Follow the on-screen prompts to update the driver.

    Hope this helps. Keep us posted on the status for further assistance.

    Thank you.
