Question Other applications hide when launching games ?

Jan 6, 2021
I just got a new 4k tv, and it seems like almost everything on my pc has stopped working correctly. I've found workarounds for most issues, but this is one I can't find one for. Whenever I launch most games, applications open on my other monitors disappear, showing only my desktop wallpaper. They come back up when I Alt+Tab out of the game, but hide again when I go back in. Is there a way to fix this?


Update your post to include full system hardware specs,, OS information, and make/model information for monitors/TVs.

How are the displays configured per "WIN" + "P" ?

What games cause the problem and what games do not?

Double check the Display configurations via:

"WIN" + "I" > System > Display > blue link lines to additional configuration settings.
