Dual Displays Issue
On my primary screen, I'm playing a fullscreen game right?

On my secondary screen, I got my browsers open and stuff. I put them there because I can drag stuff between monitors.  I can view this monitor and move my mouse from the first screen to the second one, but as soon as I click on my secondary monitor, the game on my primary monitor minimizes. This seems to be a windoze issue. Does anyone have an app that disables this "feature"?

Don't click on the other monitor? :P

Re: Dual Displays Issue
This bug was reported and fixed ages ago. Should be fine in any recent build. You're not still using 3.6.9 are you?

I don't think he's specific about FS.

Re: Dual Displays Issue
Yeah I'm playing EVE-Online  :)

But, I found a solution. EVEmon has a function to convert windowed mode to fullscreen, and that negates the issue.  :)
