If you're running Samsung Magician, close it. It was causing problems with lots of games for me. I was even about to reformat blaming my windows install!
Disable it from startup as well.

I consider that kind of stuff to be bloatware. Never installed Magician... i mean, is it really necessary?

I'll bet you used the driver disc for your monitor too.

It's actually quite useful with the latest update, but for some reason when the application itself is open it likes to interfere with various programs when they go full-screen.

I've heard the Samsung software is pretty good actually, some useful stuff. Never used it myself, though.
You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

It is, just can't have the actual application open when it's not in use. It saves all the settings regardless, so it's not a problem to close it when you're done.

msi afterburner causes games to minimize on startup everytime for me.
I can't launch war thunder with it open either.

This has been driving me crazy. Never thought it could be the Magician software. Figured it was a problem with Steam. I'll have to try this, thanks for the info.
