Chrome

Version 96 and Later (Windows)

  1. Create a shortcut for Chrome if one does not already exist. Alternatively, the start menu entry can be changed by right clicking Chrome within the start menu, then clicking "Open file location"
  2. Right click the shortcut, from the context menu click "Properties"
  3. Within the "Target" field, go to the far right side (after the quotation mark), then input a space followed by --disable-backgrounding-occluded-windows. The final result should look something like "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --disable-backgrounding-occluded-windows
  4. Click "Apply", then "OK" to save changes made to the shortcut
  5. If Chrome is already running, close the application then re-open it using the newly-edited shortcut
