Alt - tab?

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a way to exit the game while playing so i can check in the forums for a walkthrough. Alt-tab does not work. Any other method to safely minimize the game?

ALT+Enter switches between full screen and windowed mode, and when in windowed mode you can alt+tab ok. The problem is it takes quite a long time to switch when you have a mission in progress.

 

Another workaround that works on Windows in full screen mode is:

CTRL+ALT+DELETE > Task manager > Applications tab > right-click "TheDarkMod" and choose minimize.

 

That works instantly, although it's a few extra clicks. Then when done with the forum, you click on the game on your taskbar, and it'll re-open in full screen.

Thanks everyone. I will use Steve's method (CTRL+ALT+DELETE) since it is the fastest
