Computer Type: Desktop

GPU: radeon r9 280x

CPU: intel core i5 4570

Motherboard: ASRock H87 performance

RAM: DDR3 2x4, 2x8 GB

OS: Windows 10

GPU Drivers: 18.7.1

Problem: When I press alt+z to open the ReLive overlay (or even alt+r for the Radeon overlay) some fullscreen apps will minimize and some will stay focused. I'm using a 2 monitor setup and I noticed that while in fullscreen some games allow me to click on the other screen while still staying focused, while some minimize when I do so, from the game's I've tested this with, all the games that stay focused when I click on the other monitor stay focused when I press alt+z while the ones that don't all minimize when I press alt+z for the overlay.

I've made a clean install of Windows 10 and the graphics drivers before this started happening.

I've tried completely removing the drivers with DDU and installing the recommended 18.5.1 version and nothing changed.
