I don't have steam running on my system so I will try to help you.

You could try using the additional apps tab of the edit menu for each game.


I would make 2 bat files

1 To minimize LB/BB.

2 To Maximize LB/BB after game exit

I googled a bit and found this article JASON SHAW TECH BLOG

To minimize the window:

C:\>PowerShell.exe -NoLogo -NoProfile -WindowStyle Minimize -Command exit

To maximize the window:

C:\>PowerShell.exe -NoLogo -NoProfile -WindowStyle Maximize -Command exit

To return the window to normal (its default size):

C:\>PowerShell.exe -NoLogo -NoProfile -WindowStyle Normal -Command exit

To hide the window:

C:\>PowerShell.exe -NoLogo -NoProfile -WindowStyle Hidden -Command exit


I hope this helps


cheers Bman
