    Windows Making a room fullscreen.

    I'm new to this and I've been trying to look for tutorials but there isn't anything I can seem to find about making a room fit the size of the player's screen. What can I do for this to make this work? I'm using DnD in case I can simply use that but I can always use code for it if needed!
