Anyone else having a problem getting the game back to window full screen. Got a fix.

Recommended Posts

I got home launched the game and there was a small download then a second window pop up that said repairing game archive. After that was done i can no longer get rid of the windows task bar at the bottom. Im playing in windows fullscreen and no matter how many tab outs and back i do the task bar wont go away. I think they broke my game when they repaired it lol. I didnt run the repair it popped up on its own.

update..if i use fullscreen mode the game shows fully without the taskbar. But windowed fullscreen is now always with the taskbar up. Does anyone know a fix, i cant play in fullscreen i tab out and back too much and its a hassle in fullscreen.

Okay so a player in game gave me a fix. If you play in windowed fullscreen and your taskbar gets stuck on the game screen do this...open task manager/ scroll down processes till you find the windows explorer file running click restart and its fixed.

im going to leave this up in case others have the problem.

Glad you got it resolved quickly. That's incredibly annoying.

I've also resolved that particular issue by one of two methods:

  • Swapping from windowed-fullscreen to one of the specific resolutions, closing the game, restarting, then resetting.
  • Using the command line option to start up the game in a specific resolution. (I don't remember if I used windowed-fullscreen or a specific resolution, it's been so long since I last needed it.)

The trick you learned from /map is "better" in that it also applies for all sorts of other programs; the taskbar sometimes goes perflui like that. (I've also toggled the task bar from "always show" to "always hide" and back, which works most of the time.)
