Using ALT + TAB when playing GTA 5

1 discussion post

While I playing GTA 5 on my secondary screen, when I use the ALT + Tab combination, the game minimizes. What I want is; The game does not pause and minimize when I somehow return to the main screen while playing any game on the secondary screen. Likewise, the game shouldn't switch to window view mode either.

How can I do this with DisplayFusion? Thanks for your help in advance!

We have a function called "Prevent Window Deactivation". If you assign that to a key combination, and press it while in game, you should be able to alt tab without minimizing it.

Hope that helps!

I have the same issue although I play on the primary monitor and run apps for capturing high res screenshots on my second monitor.

I toggle the function to prevent deactivation, the sound plays but alt-tabbing still sends GTAV to the taskbar minimised.

EDIT: I had a thought after I posted this, the game requires Rockstar Launcher for DRM reasons, I also set this to prevent deactivation and now it works as needed
