So, my buddy got two monitors recently and is using two 4850s I gave him. He's pleased with this, but wants to be able to suft the net while playing WoW. But when he mouses over to the other monitor, WoW will minimize when he hits internet explorer. I realize putting the game in fullscreen window mode will make this issue go away, but it also takes off the Xfire watermark on the screen meaning Xfire does function with your game in window mode.

Is there a way to use Xfire, without games minimizing, that doesn't involve shutting off Xfire by going to window mode?

no Xfire only works with applications set to full screen.

When WoW gets boring have him whip out his Blackberry Playbook and surf the net.
