correct but the game will go black until you click back on the return icon in the task bar

I didn’t know this was possible, will have to try it when I get home this weekend. I have always minimized the game window in order to use my mouse on my second and third displays.

I remember doing this about a year ago, & it didn't work.
Not sure where I screwed up.

but last month, Fatal walked me through it
and IT WORKS PERFECTLY!

I can now mouse through all my screens!

I also keep the TWC Clan webpage open under my running game
for instant access to maps/targets etc...

On my second screen, I have a virtual cockpit (with big Hurri compass!)
on which I overlay a smaller version of Teamspeak so I can see who's talking
on top of unnecessary instruments in a corner.
The best part is I somehow got this second screen to always show a task bar!

Now, flying along, headed to target, I mouse to my second screen, click on the task bar
Google Chrome Icon, and down goes the game, and up pops the webpage showing pictures of my target!
(lately, it requires a double click of the task bar icon, don't know why.
one to reduce the game , and 2 to open the webpage...)

But!
Now I have a taskbar under my reduced TWCClan webpage on the main screen!
I click on the Cliffs of Dover Icon, and Boom! I am back in the cockpit!

It has made flying at 200 feet without an autopilot, and map reading/target pic sighting possible.

I highly recommend it!
