Can't minimize GW2 anymore with Windows Key + DirectX 11

Recommended Posts



Since today's update, with DirectX 11 rendering been the only choice, there is no way to minimize Guild Wars 2 using the Windows Key.


The only possibility is to press ESC, and then, left mouse click on the top right "minimize" button. This is a real pain if you often need to switch back to Windows Desktop.

This is because DX9 had exclusive full screen, which would cause GW2 to minimize if it lost focus. They could easily fake it for DX11, but they probably won't.

You can still use DX9 if you really want, you just have to launch with the -dx9 option. They only hid the option in-game.
