Guild Wars 1 Alt-Tabbing to Desktop

Since updating from Windows 10 version 1709, my GW1 game keeps alt-tabbing to the desktop whenever I am on a loading screen, so I rolled back to 1709. I know this issue was fixed for GW2, but is there any chance of it getting fixed for GW1 as well or any workarounds? Thanks!

    Wasn't fixed, GW2 still randomly alt-tabs for no reason while playing the game (not during loading),

  • For GW1, you just need to run it in compatibility mode, windows vista service pack 2.

    It fixes the minimization every time you load a map.

    You're welcome. Found an old thread on it about a month or so ago when the trilogy was on sale and I picked it up for HoM. Was quite annoying having it minimize like it would. Was glad the fix was so easy.
