Thanks for this tip! Happy to provide solution for this one: Since this week all calls and messages on my WIN10 PC are in the background. Normally an incoming call is leading and recording is easy. Now you have to make all screens small to record. DRAMA just... Suspect it has to do with an update of windows or temas. Is there a solution for this already?
