    Tabbing In and Out of Fullscreen Games takes a Long Time


    So I have laptop with specs that should run most games perfectly fine:

    8gb ram (2 4gb cards)
    nvidia 970m
    1tb hdd 7200rpm

    But recently (may have began after a windows 10 update but i cant remember) my comp has been taking huge amounts of time to tab out and especially to tab back into fullscreen games. I would say on average it takes about 30-45 seconds to tab back in which if you actually imagine clicking to tab back in and waiting that long, causes huge issues. I cannot remember exactly when it started but I don't think there was an issue when I was last at college so maybe 3 or 4 months ago. It would tab in and out in a second or two.

    I am not looking for a solution such as playing in modes other than fullscreen (windowed, etc) since I have a good comp and should not have to do that to begin with. I have many friends with weaker specs (i5's, lower gpu, etc) who do not have this issue but also do not have an SSD.

    I have ordered an SSD but I honestly would like a fix other than that if anyone has any ideas. I've seen this question posted in a lot of different places but haven't found a strong answer.

    No everything is perfectly normal. Just the things that I am using take up resources but nothing substantial.
