PostSubject: Game not minimizing in Fullscreen Fix   Tue Nov 11, 2014 11:16 pm

So before Origin and EA patched, I was able to minimize my game by using the windows key after using ctrl+prt scr. After those patches I couldn't get my game to minimize OR screen shot through ctrl+prt scr. (I use that when in CAS for mag stuff). I searched for an answer and sure enough Crinrict has a solution.

For all games in library
Log into Origin > Application Settings > Origin In Game untick top box to enable Origin in game.

For single game in library
Right click on game you want > Game Properties > check box to disable Origin in game

I did the one for just my sims 4 game as that was the ONLY one affected, and Yay I'm a happy simmer again! Celebrate cheers MeMeMe

Yuck ... No  another thing we players need to fix. My game is in Windowed mode so I have not had that issue.
Glad you found the solution and Thank You for sharing.

Thank You so much MJ ... this just started happening, and I've been having to play in "windowed mode" .... much rather play "full screen" ... but need access to Paint Shop Pro for "screen shots" ... it worked well until this last patch ... will certainly try this Big Grin

Thanks for posting this information MJ applause

I play in windowed mode on my laptop, which basically takes up my whole screen, so I didn't realize this was a problem.
