A way to switch back to desktop?


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody! I am a newbe to DCS and there is a minor issue that puzzles me. Is there a way, when I am in game, to switch momentarily to my desktop (Windows 10) so I can check emails and other stuff like game guides without be forced to exit game? I am very sorry if this question does not belong here. Thanks!! :)

How to avoid that the screen goes sleep mode? only disabling it in the control panel/power management? I have windows 8.1 and this only happen with DCS, not with Xplane, IL2, Cliffs of dover or any other sim/game


thanks and sorry for the offtopic

No if you can figure out how to do it with it running in VR I'd like to know.

If you alt + tab out you can't use the mouse to select other screen outside the area the game is being displayed on the monitor. The confine mouse option in the settings doesn't seem to affect this either.
