Many games we play look and play best in Fullscreen. However, not all of them play nicely when you press the Windows key or Alt+Tab to switch to a different window.
Fullscreen Windowed Mode lets you alt-tab instantly and keep the game running.
This ability is useful if you need to check another window while in-game, whether it's chat, web browser, or any other application.
It Alt-tabbing looks like this:
To accomplish this:
1) Run the attached no border script
2) Run your game in windowed mode at the resolution of your monitor
3) Press the hotkeys Ctrl+Shift+Numpad Minus
