Winuae 4.2 closes amiga screen

I just tried the latest Winue 4.2 and when I press f12 the Amiga screen switches to the desktop instead of being opened on the Amiga screen. Is this a new feature or am I doing something wrong, either way I would rather stay on the Amiga lo res screen instead of switching to the desktop

Maybe something like detailed in this thread: Crash in Fullscreen when pressing F12?

Try:

It is a "feature" of DirectX 11. You can switch back to Dx 9 on the Misc page. Or just live with it.

Thank you. I did actually do a search but I used the wrong search terms, I did not use "crash" because the Winuae config was still running in its own window, it just brought up the edit screen outside of the running config window.
