Hey all, first post on the forum so sorry if it's a little sketchy.

So I recently added another monitor to my setup. My main monitor is a TV using HDMI and the other is a monitor using VGA. I mainly wanted to do this so I can use chrome on my alternate monitor while a fullscreen game like Counter Strike: Global Offensive is open on my main monitor. However, if I move my cursor and select chrome on my alt monitor while CSGO is open on my main monitor, it minimizes CSGO in order for me to use Chrome on the other.

TL;DR ~ Is it possible to use chrome on a second screen without minimizing a fullscreen application on a main monitor?

Yes, i do it with LoL, and WoW while YouTube is playing, if you can and the settings let you:


Change size inside game to Windowed Mode (Full Screen)


then you should be able to click outside the game without minimizing it.



EDIT: You might have to hit the Windows Key + P > Extend This Display.
