Hi, so sometimes when you want to use 2nd monitor for browsing the game/application would alt tab itself from the game on the primary screen as soon as you press browser on the 2nd monitor.. I've found this software called 'Actual Multiple Monitors' which allows you to lock the screen with a hotkey so that it wouldn't alt tab.. however it's not the full version of the software and only 30 day trial. Any of you guys have any same program recommendations? This is what the option looks like on 'Actual Multiple monitors' software:

Run the game in Borderless Windowed or Fullscreen Windowed. This will allow you to ALT-TAB without a problem.

If the game you're running doesn't support either of the above then use [ Register or Signin to view external links. ] . It's free and open source so it's safe.

Works a treat for games that don't natively support Borderless. With Borderless Gaming, just set the game to windowed then the Borderless Gaming app will fullscreen it.

Thanks for the reply, but I want the alternative software to what I use
