Counter-Strike: Global Offensive collapses and does not unfold. Solution

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive or CS: GO is one of the most popular multiplayer shooters of our time. Recently, some users have encountered an unexpected problem - the game is minimized via the Alt + Tab command, but does not unfold back. In this guide, we'll show you how to fix this problem.


The problem with the inability to deploy CS: GO after minimizing began to arise due to the August update of Windows 10. For example, the reason may be incompatibility of the drivers of your video card with the new version of the system. But before you start serious actions, it is worth checking if everything is in order with the game itself.



Checking the integrity of game files

First you need to check the CS: GO files. It is possible that after the update, the old data has already been deleted, and the new ones have not been downloaded for some reason. To do this, you need to do the following:

  1. Launch Steam, open the Library and find Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
  2. Right-click on the name of the game and select Properties.
  3. Find the "Local Files" menu and click on "Verify Integrity of Game Files".

When checking the integrity of game files, it is advisable not to run other applications. After its completion, you will either be given a message that everything is in order, or they will find an error. In the second case, the download of the new version of the game will automatically start.


If the check is successful and the problem persists, try reinstalling CS: GO.  For example, you can leave the directory selected by default: C: \ Program Filesx86 \ Steam \ SteamApps \ common \ Counter-Strike Global Offensive.



Video card driver problem

As a rule, the problem with the drivers is found among the owners of AMD Radeon video cards. We recommend trying to go back to the 2019 version. You can download it here .


How to rollback Windows 10 updates

If the previous methods do not help, you can try to solve the issue more radically: roll back Windows 10 to the previous version. This is easy to do:


  1. Open the update log. To find it, click the Windows button, select Settings (gear), then Updates and Security, Windows Update, and finally View Update History.
  2. In the "Fixes" section, find the "Uninstall updates" item and click on it.
  3. Find the August updates and uninstall them.
  4. Reboot your system.
