  1. Games that run in full screen keep minimizing


    I have been trying to play games on my laptop. I have not had many problems in the past. But within the past few weeks, every time I try to open a game such as minecraft or call of duty, the game opens for a second or two and then minimizes. when I try to click on it on the taskbar, it opens again for a second or two then minimizes again. I have updated windows and my graphics drivers and I have scanned for malware. I am not sure what else I can do to fix this.

    :)

    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.

  4. Games that run in full screen keep minimizing

    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.
