    Question YouTube lag in fullscreen mode.

    When I'm in fullscreen mode on a YouTube video (1920x1080), it starts lagging, but when I'm pressing Alt+Tab and switch to another window (ex. Task Manager), the lag stops, and the quality remains the same. Better understanding in this video: View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nI3Rf0Mv-Ik...

    Question My GPU is causing screen tearing whilst in full screen

    I just bought a 2060 and on my second monitor (60 Hz) when I put my applications in full screen it causes stuttering/ screen tearing. I can’t find a solution online but I believe it’s due to the GPU’s FPS being higher than the maximum Hz of my monitor. If there a way I can cap it? Or any other fix?
