Connecting to plexpi using RealVNC

#1
Hi all

I installed Plex on a RasPi 3B+ yesterday. This is my 2nd Pi and I control them headlessly. The PlexPi is working as it should and I can connect to it using "plexpi:32400/web" from my PC's browser. Today I have installed a VNC server on the Pi and RealVNC viewer on my PC in the hope that a GUI would be a little more user friendly than an SSH terminal window.

This has worked fine with one problem - connecting to the Pi with the VNC viewer brings up Plex running full screen on the Pi. Not being familiar with the Pi's graphical desktop I'm wondering if it's possible to minimise the Plex application to use the GUI beneath. When starting the VNC session I briefly see the graphical desktop before Plex takes up the full screen. Alt-Tab just pops up a notification of "Plex - Chromium" but doesn't allow switching to the desktop. Is this possible?
