Hi, i'm aware this isn't a hardware or software failure but more of a setting somewhere and I am hopping somebody can help me out. If i have two windows-es open lets say a game running and browser open. Lets say my game is in window mode so i can surf the net while i play. Well my problem is when i switch my focus to browser the game freezes up and i can't see whats going on with it. I have to click the game back and put it as my main focus for it to work again. I just reinstalled my pc and did all the updates and before i could see what is happening in the game while my browser has focus. I am using multi screens (extending) and i need to be able to see whats going on on my one monitor while other one is doing something else.

If i have been confusing let me know and i will try to explain again and better.

Is this all games or just some of them? Are they Browser based flash games or downloaded games?

Most games pause or freeze when they lose focus because they assume it is an accident and don't want you to miss anything.

its an online RPG so when i lose focus and it freezes the game still goes on, when i return focus everything i missed gets updated real fast for example if my char wast sting and point A now he is standing at point B if i clicked something else while he was walking

EDIT: So i'v fixed the problem. I turned rendering in the game all the way to max and it works now. Don't know how or why but i'm happy. Thanks everyone for trying to help
