VP4 -Toggle Between Full Screen and Window view

Postby sigsky » Fri Sep 28, 2012 11:44 am

I suspect there may be an easy way to do this without stopping play but I can't seem to find it. Would be nice to check what other proggies are doing while I'm playing.

I guess I should have phrased this as a question. So is there a way? :-k

Yes, the "normal" system way on Windows, Alt-Tab. I say Windows way because this is not VP4 functionality, but is a Windows implementation for switching between applications.

In Windows 8 this does not work. I was the other week in full screen mode and I heared email coming in.
I pressed Alt-Tab and I jumped into desktop, but immediately it jumped back in VP4.
So I guess you have to be in Windowed screen to properly jump out VP4 for a moment...

A good way to play VP4 (in my opinion), is to run VP4 in Desktop Mode, then just resize the window to nearly the size of your desktop.

That way you can either ALT-TAB out to other running programs, or press ALT on its own to detach the mouse from VP4, which allows you to select other windows. I use ALT, so that I can do other things on another monitor while the AI is playing its shot on my main monitor. It comes in handy with the higher rated AI players when they are making a break, :)
