hello group,


Is there supposed to be a way where you can go from playing the game
back to your desktop while that's minmized? I tried esc and ctrl and
that minimized it but I was never able to go back to my game
successfully. It ended up not responding and messing me up. Thanks in
advance for any help or suggestions.

That works, but still it may seem like it's not responding. All depends on
your memory situation. Save often :)

I find the easiest and quickest way to minimize the game without problems is
to use the "Windows" button on your keyboard. You will find it between CTRL
ands ALT. The game goes straight to the taskbar and you can click on it and
it opens right back up where you left off.
