How does one minimize the screen while in IL2? I want to read tutorials while I am in IL2.

Thanks

Usually the Windows key works for most but theres a couple little programs you can use.

Alt-tab, windows key or ctrl-esc should all work.

Alt-tab will only work if you have another window or app open to alt-tab to, however. If not, windows key.

I also use the windows key. And also, if you want to truly minimize the game, you must set the option DrawIfNotFocused=0 in the conf.ini
Otherwise the game will be still drawn in the background and you will only see the taskbar.
I have this option set to one, since minimizing the game takes longer and it messes up my desktop resolution as it is higher than my IL-2 one.
If i want to see my desktop i then press windows-d
(Windows key and D)

CTRL+ALT+DEL
SHIFT+TAB (if there are any windows already open)
