Hi,

I have the problem, that when I'm leaving some games with alt+tab the viewer app on my laptop changes to window mode instead of staying in fullscreen mode. But it's not in every game, so I'm confused. Have I done something wrong or is it a known bug? I hope someone can help me.

Best regards

Tobi

Hi @tobi,
Is your spacedesk Windows viewer app from Microsoft Store (UWP version)?
Or is it the Windows 7 viewer app (desktop version)?

Does the game and viewer app (fullscreen mode) running on the same laptop machine?

Hi Lea,

Thanks for your reply.

My Windows viewer App is the Desktop Version.

For your second question. I'm gaming at my PC, that is my primary machine. And the the viewer App is running on my laptop. But when I press alt+Tab on my PC the viewer App on my Laptop leaves fullscreen Mode.

Did you use the actual/physical keyboard on your primary machine to press the Alt+Tab? Or Is it from Remote Keyboard input from the fullscreen Viewer app on your laptop?

Are you sure it's Alt+Tab? not Alt+Shift?

Hi Lea, 

Yes I press alt+tab on my physical keyboard on my PC and yes I'm shure that I press alt+tab and Not alt+shift.

But I have another maybe helpful Information. My PC and my Laptop don't have the same resolution. Maybe it has something to do with it, because my games are running on fullscreen. But I don't know.

Hi @tobi,
Ok, thanks for the info.

We have tried to reproduce it on our side but so far it's not successful.
Is it only happening if there's a game running on your primary machine?
Can you tell us the game?

Is your secondary machine/laptop Windows 10 too?
If yes, can you also try with Windows Viewer app from Microsoft Store?
Then check if the issue is also happening.

Another thing: can you quickly try to reproduce the issue while the remote functionality on the viewer settings (uncheck remote Keyboard, set to Mouse local (use as touch), touch off) are disabled.
Then check if the same issue persist.

Hi lea,

I just installed the viewer app from the microsoft store and it works better. It still leaves the fullscreen mode for a second but it instantly jumps back to fullscreen mode.
It's not the cleanest solution but it works for me.

If you still want to reconstruct it and try to solve it on the desktop app I will answer your questions.

It's happening for example with the game "euro truck simulator 2" and "Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege".
Yes my secondary machine is also windows 10.
And I set the viewer settings as you said but it still happens.

Thank you very much and if you still want to know more just write it here.

Tobi
