I won't lie: I suck on TF2. And the revive time on this game is crazy long. I'd rather view discord or just read news on second screen while dead.

But unfortunately, when i click anything outside game screen, it minimizes itself, and I have to click the game icon to get it back. How can I prevent it from minimizing itself?

I'm on ubuntu.

    Are you playing on Fullscreen? That's the typical culprit for me.

  • @ThomasCarroll It works well on windows but window spawns at a weird position on Ubuntu (below the bar and next to launcher). Though as majority of steam users use Windows and I didn't really state I was on ubuntu (ugh, how could I miss that), I accepted your answer.

Try borderless-windowed mode!

Add -windowed -noborder in the launch options.
