    Not sure I understand what you are doing. Applets run in a browser. Does the browser's window change?
    Does your applet create another frame?

    Can you make and post here a small simple example that compiles, executes and demonstrates your problem?

    It's not easy.
    I have a application and all hours it calls a page with the applet (like 11h, 12h 13h...). This page open in a hidden IE window.
    The application and the applet works fine, but if i have a game in fullscreen, the game will be minimized when the applet starts.

    If you have more questions please ask me. Thanks.

    Is any of this code that you are writing?
    It sounds like you are complaining about the way some other programs work.

    Can you make a small simple program that compile, executes and will show the problem?
    Then describe the steps to take to make it show the problem.

    What do you mean by "when the applet starts"?
    Where is the browser that runs the applet? Is it open and executing?

    "when the applet starts" means when appears the JVM icon on windows try bar.
    The browser is Internet Explorer and is opened with parameter to hidden and with the page with applet.

    Sounds like a lot of parts and interrelations that would be hard to duplicate for testing.

    Is a C# arguments like
    ProcessStartInfo startInfo = new ProcessStartInfo();
    startInfo.CreateNoWindow = false;
    startInfo.UseShellExecute = false;
    startInfo.FileName = "IEXPLORE.exe";
    startInfo.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden;

    Right.
    How does hidden mode differ from minimized to an icon in the taskbar?

    Is this an OS thing. It wants to show something so it moves whatever is in the way out of the way.
