I was wondering is their a way to filter the messages sent to an application(From another application)? So that perhaps Random.exe won't get the keys a,b,c etc. pressed because FilterRandom.exe was screening those messages.

So would it be possible then to fool a program into thinking its active except the mouse and keyboard are being used for another program? for example stop it from minimizing...

Because I was trying to figure out a way to play full screen games on one monitor while still being able to use the other one. So far I have not found one way or method to be able to keep playing a full screen game without minimizing.

That is limitation of exclusive mode and is an issue with graphic cards/drivers/window system.

Rather than playing full screen, play in maximized windowed mode. Then you're free to move your mouse between screens.

Yeah that's what google pretty much told me. So should I even bother with global hooks or simply just accept the usual way of doings things with a maximized window?
