    When searching the forum, I keep encounternig forum posts from years ago saying "Unity not made for this" when attempting to correct this: Apparently one cannot obtain a Unity borderless window and stop the game from minimizing upon focus loss without doing hacky things:

    In 2017, it seems almost standard this age to offer full-screen windowed and to not minimize on lack of focus. This feels very "90s". It seems silly that we have Vulkan support before having borderless window mode --

    Are there any plans to allow for this? :)

    There's a player setting for that:

    If you check it, the standalone player will not minimize when you lose focus in fullscreen.
