    Hello folks and folkettes!

    Quick question: whenever I open up a game (in this case Dota 2) and I wish to return to the desktop, by either pressing either CTRL+ESC or WIN+D or even ALT+TAB, the only thing that comes on top is the taskbar. Even if I click on Aero Peek, it doesn't go back to the desktop.

    If I don't have any other program open, I can't return to it. The image I have added to the post shows what happens when I press either one of those buttons.

    This happened after I connected a second monitor to my laptop to try something out, and ever since that I can't really return to desktop.

    A little help would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!
