Alt1 dissapearing from fullscreen mode

Hello!

Windowed more works great, however apps are dissapearing when I play in fullscreen mode NXT. And I really can't play windowed RS, because for some odd reason, windowed mode gets me 20-25 fps, while fullscreen is fully 60 fps.

Re: Alt1 dissapearing from fullscreen mode

Sadly this is technically impossible because of the way fullscreen mode works. In windows making a program fullscreen stops all other programs from rendering and thus also prevents Alt1 from being displayed.
If fullscreen mode has a drastic fps impact like you stated there might be a program open that takes a lot of processing power and you might get the same fps increase without going fullscreen by simply closing this program. For example twitch is known to have a high fps impact on other programs. If you are on an old or low end system there might be nothing you can do tho.

note: There are two types of full-screen mode, the "disable all other programs fullscreen" which usually increases fps, this is usually used in games. There is also the "borderless windowed fullscreen" which basically just makes the window fill the full screen area, but doesn't do anything else, this is usually what happens when you watch videos in fullscreen, but is becoming more common with games.

Re: Alt1 dissapearing from fullscreen mode

I just checked and on my computer the nxt client uses borderless windowed fullscreen mode which doesn't change my fps and also still shows Alt1. From everything you told me tho it sounds like your client is using the "disable all other programs fullscreen" mode.

How could I change that mode?
