Summary0005057: Remove ability to alt-tab when not using windowed mode

MTA or GTA does not like running while minimized. The solutions are:
1) Fix it.
2) Allow the game to pause when minimized.
3) Disallow minimization.

Until someone figures out how to do 1, the best thing for now would be to implement 3

What does not work about that exactly?

I was very pleased to see that I am actually able to minimize it, unlike the old race release. No problems with this so far.

You also had the problem there that when it crashed you could not open the task manager, as it didn't want to minimize and was on top of the TM.

I haven't experienced any problems with the current way of Alt+Tabbing either.
