I have two monitors, whenever I launch a game in fullscreen, some of my other windows (chrome, skype, whatever) switch randomly to my second monitor and stay there when I quit the game, it doesn't always happen but it's always when they weren't minimized. It still happens when I turn off the second screen before launching the game. I do not know if its specific to Windows 10.

Any way to prevent it ? Even a third party app will do.

  • Could you try windowed fullscreen and see if it still happens? – TheKB Jun 5 '16 at 11:14
  • It doesn't - I lose performance though – inScienta Jun 5 '16 at 12:11

Finally I succeed by creating a new workspace on Windows 10 (Ctrl+Win+D) and play the game there.

  • How? I am trying the same thing, but when I create a new Desktop, I can only keep one in focus. – BruceWayne Jan 11 '17 at 23:45
  • You create a new workspace, launch your game in that so that your others workspaces won't be affected by your game window. You only have one window in focus : your game. – inScienta Apr 15 '17 at 14:48
