I can alt tab to go out of the game, but when I want to go back in it doesn't want to be active, can I fix this with some kind of program?

(Its only on fullscreen programs that are acting like that).

found a fix, I just switched to windowed(fullscreen) now I can alt-tab. – hasharc Jun 27 '12 at 9:13

You need to go to settings, Graphisc and then Display mode= Windowed(Fullscreen)

It's worth noting that 'Windowed (Fullscreen)' isn't supported in enough games, works fine for Blizzard games though. – kalina Jun 27 '12 at 9:35
Also works great in SW TOR – Viper_Sb Jun 27 '12 at 16:18
Can also be done is Valve games with some launch parameters. – Kenan Jun 27 '12 at 22:31
