Welcome to the forum Btw first of all.

Hmm... Control and tab usually works. Have you tried to hold it down to try and get that box in the middle to say which program to go back to? Thats the only thing I can think of I'm afriad.

Some games go wrong if you do this, and don't come back up right which might be why they've locked it if they have.

Hope you get answers

yeah i have waited to till the box comes up bt the problem is the game trys to block it ... well cover it up you can still see it but now fast enought to actually close it down and even when you do you can't minimize it.

usually i wudent be bothered about this but the game takes about a year to load !

Yeah, they might have done it on purpose to stop it from happening just incase it crashes the game, because its a multiplayer game right?

I know you probably do this, but have you tried doing it when the games paused and maybe not refreshing as much? Not sure if this would help though.

I'll look into it

That gives you the answer of no I'm afraid too... so it seems like it is locked.

Thats a bit stupid if you ask me though...

There is news in forums of a hack which allows it to minimize though, and other things. I won't post anything about that though as it's probably an illigal hack...

I saw in forums of people using a virtual PC emulator or something to open it up so they could minimize...
