I just switched to the Windows 11, and I'm having issues with the performance in windows that are not in focus. Usually I watch YouTube on my second screen, but in Windows 11 the Videos only really play when they are in focus, same problems with some other applications.

Is there a setting I missed or is it an optimization that is in Windows 11 which can't be switched off?

@Grobhack   I too am having a similar problem where One Drive just completely stops uploading files when not in focus.
