Why does my game pause automatically when I open another browser or any other program on my pc?

  • What happens is basically that when I am playing in opera and I change to another process, application, browser, etc ... (using the task bar "Without Minimizing Opera GX, only opening or changing to another program or application") the game is automatically pause, even the sound of the game .. however if I am playing something on YouTube and change the browser in that case the music is heard in the background. I would like you to help me or inform me if there is any option for a game to always remain active even if the browser or program is changed.

    Postscript: this text is translated with google translate, so sorry if something is not understood.

    My actual opera version: LVL3 (core: 79.0.4143.73)
    Windows 10 64-bit
