How to multitask while playing gta 5

Question

Arch93

I've got a question and I've been wondering how to do this but how do you use your pc while gta 5 is running can it be done because the cursor is not shown at all and it stays in the game window during gamepla I'm assuming there might be an option in the settings and if there is I'm not sure where it would be some help on this question would be good

In asking how to do other things on your computer like web browsing and stuff while the game is running I still haven't figured it out yet

what you mean by "game running"?

Like not having to close the game? 
Or you dont mind minimizing the game but you dont want it to go to the pause menu?

The first option is very easy. Just minimize your game. After you done what you need, you can maximize it again

The secound one, is a little bit more complicated.
Natively, you cant do this. As soon as you minimize the game, it will enter on pause menu. Unless you are in online, but usually you have about one minute idle before you get kicked of inactivity

If what you want to multitask is playing and surfing the web, what you can do is get an overlay browser, like there is on steam, and you can open that overlay over your game. 
This will allow to have your game actually running while you go online, tho your imputs will not afect the gameplay. So if you are online, be aware that if you take too long (i think its 13 mins) without any game imput, you will be kicked out of the lobby.

Other way you can do it, is get a 2nd PC or laptop. Is what i use. 
I have my PC where i play, and i have my laptop on the side, where i check my facebook, my chat while im streaming, and so on

Your question makes little or zero sense...

 

Can you better explain what you're actually trying to do?
