    Borderless Gaming and forced DWM / Tripple Buffering

    Hey guys,

    I've had this problem for a while now and I can't seem to find anything after weeks and weeks of googling

    Basically, I run my games in Borderless because I have multiple monitors, it's easier for me to switch between monitor 1 and 2 this way. With Windows 7 I would right click all my games .exe files and disable Aero on everything, this would remove input lag on all my games.

    With Windows 10, you can't disable Aero... as it uses DWM, which means all my games running in borderless mode have a hint of input lag, which is driving me up the wall.

    The only fix so far is running games in Fullscreen, which 100% completely eliminate input lag, but as I said before, multi-display setup, I'd rather not use Fullscreen.

    Has ANYONE found a fix for this? (I have disabled XBOX DVR)

    i5 2500k @ 4.8GHz
    8 GB Ram
    Nvidia 980 GTX
    Windows 10 x64

    1920x1080 @ 60hz
    120fps constant, no dips.

    TLDR: Windows 10 has input lag when borderless gaming

    I dont know how you will do it without giving the game full control of the monitor , as far as i remember windowed forces vsync on , Is it input lag from vsync? If not there is no way around it in win 10 , that said i have no such input lag in windowed mode but i have a gsync monitor
