Just wondering if there is a download or and keys to hit to minimise Battlefield2 whilst in game?
Cntl-Alt-Delete. Simple. Only works if you're in the menu though.
Alt-tab works all the time, IIRC... I've screwed up my graphics a time or two (just doing it again usually fixes it)
You got to remember that "Left ALT" is actually a 3D-map key. ALT TAB works best if you use the RIGHT ALT key
Does the Right Alt /Tab work in game?
It should work. Works for me. Sometimes ALT+TAB works best if you have another window to switch to. In other words, start Windows Explorer(or Notepad) and minimize it to your Task Bar before starting the game. Then when you ALT+TAB you will be 'switching' to the Windows Explorer window thereby minimizing BF2. If ALT+TAB isn't working then CTRL+ESC should certainly work, regardless of whether you have another window minimized to your Task Bar or not.
