    How get to desktop from game


    Hello everyone, I'm have trouble with getting to my desktop when i'm in a game. In win7 I would ALT+TAB and i would have a desktop tile but the windows open on my other monitors would not close. In win10 if I ALT+TAB there is no desktop tile and if I WINKEY+TAB I get "New Desktop" but all my windows close until I do WINKEY+TAB again and go back to my previous desktop.

    To get out of a game, I always press the WIN key and that's it.

    Did you try WIN key? Or just gave up? Not trying to offend.

    I honestly think Windows 10 is much better than 7, I can't stand 7.

    I did try but but it still minimised all my windows which I hated so I just reverted to the windows that's easiest for me to use

    Ah, ok. I don't know why your Windows 10 is doing that, it doesn't to me.

    Edit: Here is what the matter is, when you do WIN+TAB you won't get a desktop until you click anywhere on the screen and that will take to you the desktop. When I did it just now, it took me straight to my Edge window. Didn't click the Edge window, just click on the open space and took me to desktop with nothing minimized. I wished I would have know that sooner... Ugh!!
