Is there a way to force the game to stay in full screen?

So when I hit alt-tab it will just switch to another window or the desktop and than back again? Instead of changing to windowed mode?

Using win7, and when I alt-tab it goes into windowed mode and the only way to get back to full screen is to do it manualy in the game menu.

Alt-Enter to force back to full screen, but I believe the app needs to be windowed to allow you to switch

No, this does not happen, if I alt-tab again, it just switches windows..it does NOT go back to full screen...is this a win7 thing?

Ops..sorry, alt-enter does make full screen...just used to alt-tab being able to switch windows without it turning full screen mode off... thank you =)
