Alt tab problems FSX

Recommended Posts

Guest Formula

I know this might not be the right place to ask but why when I alt tab out of FSX does it not let me return to the sim? I can click the taskbar and hear the sounds for the sim but it doesnt load the video it just sits there on the desktop. I can also use the task manager and click bring to front but this does the same thing, sim sound but no video. Basically after alt tab it just sits on the desktop and doesnt return to the sim. I need help with this because I cant properly load fuel or Radar contact or get my VAFS up and running until I can successfully alt tab. Thanks for the help. Im using XP not Vista.Bryan

Did you try in the not full screen mode? Just a thought... I have used alt-Tab to navigate just as you describe, but I usually allow the menu bar top and task bar below. Hope this helps.

And if you can do that do not forget to pause the sim before going out from FSX.Matyas Majzik

Hi Guys:This is an issue that has affected me in the past. To get around the problem of Alt-Tab out of FSX from Full Screen, you need to Alt-Enter to bring the sim to windowed mode, then Alt-Enter to get the sim back to ful screen once you have Alt-Tabbed your way back to it. Just another FSX Quirk... :-8CheersPaul


Is there a way to auto ignore trolls, flamers and any post with a +1 in it here?
