Hi Oliver,

Is this issue specific to this particular game only? If yes, in which game is this bahaviour noticed?

This issue could occur if the your playing a game at a different resolution than the desktop resolution. I owuld suggest you to se the resolution for both as the same and then check if the issue persists. If the issue persits, I owuld suggest you to install the drivers from the manufacturer's website in comatibility mode. Try these steps and let us know the results.

Cheers,
Ben.

It's not just Intel, I've got AMD R9 series GPU & exactly the same problem. 8 core CPU / 32G ram / 1T SSD & HDTV, might as well play on a phone for the display I get. Just like with Vista I went back to XP, I'll be going back to 7 from 10. It all worked great on that, now I have apps instead of programs, lots of fancy looking stuff that doesn't do much. Stuff for phones & laptops not serious computers.

Ok, I reverted my laptop back to windows 8.1 and I'll keep using that until the problem is fixed. Please reply when the problem with games not going into fullscreen when not in 1920x1080 is fixed so I can get back to Windows 10.

In settings of respective games there is an option of screen type.

            OR

Adjust The resolution in game settings itself.

I have my games options to play in Full

Screen mode and they are all now in Window mode and I cannot change them. Difficult for me to see and play and if there is no answer it is back to W7.

The problem is the older games do not have a full range of graphics settings. I've played the likes of the original Diablo & Heretic 2 on Windows 7 full screen HDTV. The AMD catalyst control centre allows you to select full screen, and enable the GPU to fit any game setting into that. But it doesn't work with Windows 10, even using Steam game server it's just a panel in the centre of the screen. As I said before it looks more like a phone screen than a wide screen. If we're to get mandatory automatic updates from now on then I'll stick with Windows 7, until they fix all this and let us transfer our settings as well as files.

Back on Windows 7, glorious wide screen panoramic vision & sound. Note to all, especially Microsoft, it's not our job to search for answers to these cockup releases. We paid good money for our computers & OS, you come along screw it all up with your vision ( more money ads ). Then land us with a EULA for free, that means you accept no responsibility for any mistakes you make that impact the user.  Furthermore you are legally entitled to take control  of all updates / upgrades to any users computer, basically you will own that computer. NSA & GCHQ never thought of that, or did they :-)
