# 1 alt+tabbing causing crash
12-05-2012, 08:01 AM
Between waves of enemies, I alt+tab to my browser to check facebook or whatever but when I alt+tab to get back to the game, I get a black screen and I can't exit out. I have to ctrl+alt+del to exit out of STO.

Does this happen with anyone else?

What OS are you using?

My two IRL buddies who play this both have that problem on windows 7, but i'm on XP and can tab out like crazy. Does it still do it if you tab out via Ctrl-Alt-Delete?

I was getting that a bit back when I had STO installed on my SSD, I uninstalled and reinstalled on a traditional hard drive, and it hasn't happened since.

This thread is probably going to be moved to the support section, I've never had that problem but I have dual monitors and I run the game using the "Windowed Maximized" setting so that I can move the cursor between screens without having to tab.

just have your game window set to windowed maximized
and just hit your windows key on your keyboard, and alt tab that way.
