    In Windows 8 you could do it, and I know you can use Windows + D, but that doesn't work in games, specifically Far Cry 4 in my case. So every time I want to leave the game without quitting it I need to make it windowed and do whatever it is I want to do then make it fullscreen again. Even in bordered mode this doesn't work. Can someone help me with a way to come out of the game?

    Alt+tab works fine for me in most games. I would imagine some games hook alt+tab which would be why it doesn't work in some games. You could use ctrl+alt+del to break out of the game though. Programs cannot hook this sequence because it is owned by the winlogon process.
