It happens to most of us too. The only thing I was able to find, is a workaround that works; I'm not sure, but I didn't find any permanent solution on the issue, for BF2142.

Basically what you have to do is to Alt+Tab when you're in the Main Menu (or in the Login Menu, I don't remember now). You have to do it just once, as soon as you boot the game; then you can forget about it and Alt+Tab will work correctly in-game too.

This has pretty much been a problem with the game since it was first created. Never found a good work around.

Is Alt-Tabbing a big deal in BF2142?

I hope spencer comes with a fix for this, somehow.
Its EA fault anyway, happens since launch.

Perhaps you didn't read my post; if you boot the game directly from the game folder, and you Alt+Tab before logging in in-game, then Alt+Tabbing when you're actually playing is fixed!

Here's the source of the statement, which I've tested myself and it's working fine for me: https://forums.bf2s.com/viewtopic.php?id=100881.

After googling for another bit I've came across this file that I have yet to test (http://www.moddb.com/games/battlefield-2142/downloads/battlefield-2142-alt-tab-fix), and I've also read that you have to run BF2142 in the same resolution as Windows, otherwise you might have problems: http://www.tbgclan.com/threads/bf2142-alt-tab-problem.9943/.

Are you running RivaTuner by any chance? I kind of had the same issue after updating to latest version of RTSS. No HUD and not able to ALT+TAB was the issue for me.
Unticking "Custom Direct3D support" in RivaTuner fixed it.
