ESO is crashing when I hide

I used to hide ESO main screen with Cmd-H to go quickly go to my desktop when was needed. Now I took that habit and whenever I do and switch back to ESO, is frozen and crashed. Is that really a problem to switch back to normality? And possibly playing full screen again, now windowed. Thanks!!!

    That should work just fine. I do it all the time with no problem. You should try an ESO repair before you try anything else.

    I repaired too many times so far, don't know what is causing the issue. I play on the iMac Pro. Mojave 10.14.1. Do you use the same os?

    To switch to desktop I actually use Alt+Enter and then simply bring another window that I need with mouse. As a workaround for the time being you may want to check this if that works for you.

    Alt+Enter to exit full screen
    Work with desktop
    When switching back to the game I need to press mouse button once otherwise I cannot use keyboard. Weird bug but this is how it works.
    After that I can use again Alt+Enter to get back to full screen.

    And I use Mojave 10.14.1 too.

    I too have had consistent crashes on hiding client, doing something OS (eg run Minion) and then returning to client - it's just frozen, requiring cmd-opt-esc to quit and then restart... (running on Mojave).

    Thanks, I knew also that shortcut, and I have to remember it from now on. Just to know, did you try CMD-H on Mojave? What happens?

    Not yet but will try tomorrow. In general it is true that there are a few bugs with changing to and from fullscreen or switching to desktop. Hopefully tomorrow some will be fixed.

    Edit:
    I have checked Cmd+H now. It does not really crash the client a process still remains active and working however after going back to the game it appears that gui is completely unresponsive. Same as it used to be even with Alt+Enter on PTS before 4.2 launch.

    😆 You're not helping Morgul667! 😂
    Seriously though, keep hitting em with tickets and bug reports.
    Then they may eventually fix something.
    We can live in hope 😞

    Yes, same here. The music is going on and the gui is freezing

    The crashes are coming... You can run but you can’t hide

    I've found that if I make it fullscreen (Settings > Video) and then minimize the window, it crashes. If I leave it in windowed mode, it's fine with minimizing.
