    Default need assist for weird in-game window issue

    I am going to try and explain this best I can. I have two monitors. On the one, I play BF4, on the other, I have battlelog and my map. If I switch windows (alt+tab) to battlelog or TS and then try to come back to the game, the window will maximize, but it acts like the window isn't selected. Therefore, I cannot click anywhere in the game window, and my deploy button will flash. the only way I have been able to get back to game is to completely exit the game and then re-connect. I have alt+tab'd the crap out of it. any suggestions on what I am doing wrong? I have tried while running different browsers as well, no luck.

    Thanks

    Borderless is the only way to go. I found going to test server, set options to borderless, shoot a few things then quit, give it a couple minutes, then quit Origin, then reboot machine makes it "remember" the setting the best.

    Even after that, there are still times that alt-tabbing out of game has unpredictable results, but is far better than full screen. In my experience, this happens as frequently in Win10 as Win7, so I cannot really say it is the OS, but probably a quirk of the game.

    Hope you can resolve the issue.
