  1. Games minimizing to desktop


    It just started today. I haven't done anything, updated, downloaded, nothing along those lines. I've checked my keyboards, used 3 different ones. All have the same result.

    I do the same thing I've always done not closing background applications or windows on other screens. The... Ok now it's happening as I'm typing. Windows 10's focus seems to go elsewhere but I can't figure it out for the life of me.

    It's random too. I've checked the event viewer, nothing out of the ordinary there. I've rebooted and the first thing I did was try Rocket League. It was going smoothly, took longer than last time but it still happened.


    Update - Figured it out. Some unknown file threat I can't even spell .dll was causing the issue. Found it after running malwarebytes, ccleaner, and SuperAntiSpyware.

    Keeping Game Fullscreen

    When I have a game on fullscreen mode on Windows 10 and then I switch to a different desktop and then come back to the game's desktop, the game becomes minimized and takes a while for it to go back into it. Is there any way to keep it from minimizing when
    switching desktops so I can get back to the game instantly without waiting ~10 seconds?

    Thank you

    Keeping Game Fullscreen

    There's nothing wrong with my computer. I just want to know if there's a way to keep a game not minimized when switching between virtual desktops.
