just close all the apps and open Apex, don't touch your mouse untill game turn on.
If appears any pupup during the game (when u plug in pendrive etc) problem returns and you have to close and open Apex again.
It works for me.

I also experience this problem. I have two monitors and if I click anything on my second monitor, Apex minimizes. Borderless window doesn't minimize but it seems like there's a hit to FPS. I do notice it seems like my monitor's ICC profile only applies to the borderless window mode so it looks better, but I think there's a hit to performance. I haven't turned on a FPS counter yet to verify.
GTX 970 4GB
1080p resolution on primary monitor
1680x1050 on secondary monitor
I have same issue- I can get game to run in windowed or borderless windowed but will minimize everytime i set it to full screen. Only resolution I've found is to either reinstall apex or reinstall Nvidia drivers and then it'll work for a day maybe and then it does it again. Please help. I've tried most of the resolutions in this thread already but so far the only way I've found to fix are the two ways I've mentioned and they only fix temporarily.
How to Pull a DxDiag
Hi Blueberry- thanks for the quick reply. I am on a laptop running with external GPU to dual monitors. I tried launching from Geforce experience same result. Attached is DxDiag. This issue just started around 2 weeks ago maybe and had been playing since launch without this happening until recently.
There is a new driver out for your RTX card. I'd recommend downloading that to see if it has an effect. With dual monitors, are you playing with 3 total or your laptop screen and the other monitor?

Thanks for the reply. So the laptop plugs into an external GPU with the RTX card in it and then the 2 monitors plug into the external GPU. It is just the 2 monitors only that are active/used and i keep the laptop screen de-activated. The external GPU/RTX card also runs to a capture card on a separate PC I use for streaming.
When I check in geforce experience it says I have 418.91 release date 2/13/19 and says its up to date/latest driver installed? I even just re-installed it yesterday to get Apex working last night but I will double check this and see if my Geforce Exp isn't picking up the latest. Thanks.
I see on nvidia's website that 419.67 is available so i'll manually download that and report back if still an issue- thanks again.
Updated to 419.67 for the rtx2080 2 days ago. fixed it immediately for last two days and now today its back to minimizing again whether i launch from desktop, origins, or geforce experience. Any other suggestions to try?
