Windows 7: Dual Screen, Window management.

01 Oct 2012   #1

Dual Screen, Window management.

I've recently installed another screen. When I play games and want to use a web page or music/audio program on my other screen, it will minimise the game every time I select the audio program or web page.

Wondering if there are some drivers or settings I could use to stop the window from minimising.

Any help would be appreciated thanks.

Hi Brycc, Welcome to seven forums.

What you are seeing is something that i have always known to be the case, when i used to play WoW, there was a setting that could be changed to allow you to stop it.

I soon changed it back though - Reason being:

When you have it set the way it is at the moment (default) the mouse is locked within the game, when it isn't it allows the mouse to move over to the other screen which is very hard to get used to as if you are playing the game and you quickly move the mouse to the right, the mouse then goes onto the other screen so you are no longer controlling the game.
