Game Keeps Minimizing!

Just started today. I launch the game and it keeps minimizing itself, pretty much the second I enter, no matter how many times I tab back into the game window. It’s not happening with any other games, in any mode, fullscreen, windowed, borderless windowed, etc… I’ve tried over a dozen now. I just can’t recreate the issue in any other game. Trying to think what changed between yesterday and today but nothing that I can think of. Running on Windows 10, NVidia drivers up to date and haven’t changed in over a week, didn’t change any in game settings… Ideas?

Okay so from the launcher I continued messing around and switched from Fullscreen to Borderless Windowed mode and that seems to have “fixed” it. I then switched back to fullscreen mode via the in game settings and it’s back to doing the minimizing again… so it’s something with fullscreen mode. I guess it’s an acceptable workaround, but it’s something that maybe should be looked into. I submitted a report.

FWIW, I used to have the same problem and discovered I was inadvertently hitting my Windows key while I was playing. Your mileage may vary, but popping that key off my keyboard solved it for me.

Definitely not the problem, but thanks for replying! I’m still experimenting to figure out what it is, but in the meanwhile using borderless windowed/windowed mode works…

That is the mode most people use and AFAIK it’s the best to use performance wise, so if it fixes the problem just keep using it :slight_smile:
