    Hi,

    I'm having a few problems whilst running things in full screen mode. I'm trying to run a couple of games in full screen mode, but every so often it just minimises and I have to click back to open them up again. As you can probably tell this is extremely annoying.

    This doesn't just happen in game however, something else happens even when using Chrome and typing this. As I type right now, it will randomly click off this window as if a popup has come up and I have to click back into this text box to type otherwise it just makes the windows error noise when you try and type in a box that you can't type in.

    I have no idea why it's doing this, any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    M

    hi. click on start and type regedit in the search box, when in the console is open go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER>control panel and click on desktop, look for the entry called ForegroundLock and and open, the box under Value data should read 30d40 and the Hexadecimal base should be dotted, click OK, close the regedit console and reboot, try now

    Just a thought but before going through registry hacks, wouldn't the best course of action be finding out which program / process is stealing focus and fix that?

    I already checked this and it was set to that value automatically.


    How would you recommend I go about doing this? I tried sitting and watching the Task Manager for a while but it was difficult to see what process was starting when it was happening.

    try disabling your antivirus program and then test for minimising
