  1. My FPS is locked at 30 when playing in Fullscreen/ Borderless Fullscreen, but not when...


    I initially noticed this issue while playing Warframe the other day. I normally get anywhere from 40-60 fps depending on what is going on in the game. Switching from Windowed to Fullscreen/Borderless Fullscreen will lower my fps to 30 over a few seconds, switching back to Windowed will return it to where it was. This happens regardless of what i have my in-game fps limit at. Any advice would be very helpful.


    My specs:

    CPU: Intel Core i5-4570 @3.20ghz

    GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4600

    RAM: 8 GB

  2. Windows 10 Borderless Fullscreen

    I recently switched from Windows 7 to 10 and have found out that with multiple monitors, borderless fullscreen doesn't work as it did on Windows 7. I usually play games in borderless fullscreen so that I can easily do other things on my second monitor.
    Whenver I would click on something on my second monitor, the taskbar would appear on my main monitor. However, with Windows 10, this is not the case and the taskbar would not appear. Is there any way to make it so that if I alt tab to my second monitor my
    taskbar will popup on my main monitor?

    Taskbar in fullscreen borderless

    I was having the same exact problem as you. Do you happen to have an Nvidia graphics card? I just got a new driver update a few hours ago and once the drivers were installed, I restarted my PC. Looks like it's back to normal now with the taskbar showing
    up as normal when in borderless fullscreen.

    Taskbar in fullscreen borderless

    Hi!

    Recently I've run into a small problem with the taskbar. When I play games in fullscreen borderless where the game is still running when I ALT+Tab to another window the taskbar dissapears while the game is running. As soon as I close the game the taskbar
    reappears but as long as the game is running, minimized or not the taskbar is gone. It's still possible to bring it up with the windows-key but I was wondering if there is a solution to this issue.

    Thanks in advance!

    Mikael
