So I have 3 monitors, and I have a video playing fullscreen on one of the screens (does not matter which one) and if I click on another program or window, it will exit fullscreen.

It does not always do it, but I am not sure exactly when it doesn't do it, most of the time it does exit.

How do I change that?

(Windows 8.1)

**If I have the fullscreen video on one screen, and I click on the browser, it stays fullscreen but the windows taskbar appears overtop of it. That is the only time it stays fullscreen, but of course another simialr issue.

***Apparently, DisplayFusion has a feature called "Show taskbar in front of fullscreen applications when they lose focus" disabling this fixes the second issue, and may even fix the first, will have to see.

There's even a bug report about it occurring when other applications force it to lose focus:



Here's a potential solution:
