It's always those games where I need to change the most options, too.

I used to play with an inverted y axis but then one time I took a week off gaming and my brain fixed itself.

Inverted Y-axis only ever makes sense to me in flight sims.

For Honor has inverted X switched on by default for some reason and it troubles me that millions of people probably just kept it that way.

My urges are becoming...

UNCONTROLLABLE

I played a fuckload of star fox/64 before I ever played anything first person or before games really started giving you good analog camera control so I was destined from the start to prefer inverted vertical.

Also getting my new computer after work is making this shift INTERMINABLE.

The one thing I can't do with non-inverted y axis yet is aim in shooter games. I've been meaning to hop back into Horizon Zero Dawn and un-invert so I can see if I can still shoot robot dinosaurs in their weak spots, because at least the slow motion will help out.

Non fullscreened gaming is gross.

Unless you mean you want to switch it to a borderless window the size of your monitor, rather than having the application running in "full screen" mode...

chat on your phone?

But still, if there's one thing that I don't need to improve my gaming experience, it's my row of 30 tabs open in chrome, a LaTex editor, a two powershell instances, my steam library, task manager, discord, etc all peaking around the edges of my game. Please block all that out so i can focus on the game.

you can still put it in windowed borderless and just alt tab

i mean are you shrinking the game window down to the corner of your screen so you can see your discord or what because that's what straight windowed is for

it honestly depends on the game whether fullscreen matters a lot.

Nah - it's down to 1366x768 which is fine for playing, and that way I can see the icons flash and alt-tab to them. I'm not yet used to borderless fullscreen as it's still new and I mean, I'm used to keeping an eye out for a flashing icon. (As I mute any chat alerts.)

My friend literally crashed her laptop once because chrome had like several hundred tabs open that she wouldn't close.

I get a little OCD-esque when I hear about these people because no no no you close your tabs when you're done with them!

It depends. I have one window for random fun poo poo, and this one is likely to spawn tabs as I open links, but because it's random fun poo poo, it's also easy to pair back down to its base 4/5 tabs, which are SA, Reddit, chat, email, youtube.

Then if I'm doing work, I have a window that's basically for documentation and stack overflow. This one can get huge, but if I'm trying to track down some specific problem, and it's taking awhile, I'm pretty much going to keep every relevant tab of documentation and post that's relevant until I've solved the problem. Then I'll whipe out all those problem specific tabs and go back down to base of the project I'm working on.

If I'm doing work in browser, that will be a 3rd window with only that one tab, to make it easy to go back and forth between the work environment and the documentation.

I've gotten super good at managing my tabs using multiple windows and closing them when I'm done with them, compared to how I used to be. My parents are the worst, they use tabs instead of bookmarks and have like 60 open all the time. For days on end. It's horrible.

But honestly, since I switched the my 2 window system, I rarely have more than 20 tabs per window.
