I may have seen this mentioned in another thread, but not with this title apparently. (Although it may have some relation to the "Resolution issue" thread.)

I'm running Win 8.1, at 1080p screen resolution. The "Full Screen (vs windowed play)" checkmark button, will 'check' but makes no difference: checked or unchecked the game plays sort-of like a window, with a grey bar across the top that can be x-closed (for quitting) and minimized (back to desktop). But it isn't a full window, because there's no taskbar on the screen (like from alt-tabbing out -- then the taskbar shows up), and it can't be resized in any way. The "max / resize" button between the x-quit and the minimize button on the upper right, is greyed out and doesn't work.

This is hardly a gamebreaking problem -- everything looks rights, my clicks land where they look like they're pointing, I can alt-tab in and out fine. It's just odd: the option to have a window doesn't work. Or the option to be in fullscreen perhaps.

So you see the gray topbar with the X (and max/min) regardless of whether you're in full screen or not?
That's strange. I've Windows 10 and Windows XP and haven't seen that.

(the resize is turned off even if you're in Windowed mode).

Yep. Doesn't hamper play any; the bottom of the (apparently borderless) window is the bottom of the screen. There's just no distinction when checkmarking that option.

Absolutely low on the list of things to fix, but I thought I should ask if I'm missing something to do it right, so...

Thanks, will put it on the list, though a few other things to do first!
