solid green or is it a green tint, no blue?

as far as lag, it could mean the lack of resources for the game to be played in the larger window.

I would say a very light green but, I've recently updated video card drivers. Haven't seen one yet. Hope it stays that way. Lack of resources what do you mean :/

"Resources" is a catchall word for everything that goes into the computer's overall power...RAM, processor speed, bus speed, etc.

Games use a lot of resources so when one is running, there may not be a lot of "extra" resources to do other things.
