    GMS2v: 2.2.1.291

    Having a really strange issue that came out of nowhere after not using GMS2 for about a month (no updates).

    When I set my game to fullscreen, it just gets rid of the border on the window but it doesn't actually stretch the game window to the full screen.

    I can change the size of the window manually but that's it.

    I tried ALT + Enter, manually calling window_set_fullscreen(), none of those attempts work.

    What's going on?

    Fullscreen size: 1026x800px
    Logical room size: 1024x768px

    You are quite a few versions behind, so update and try again.

    actually it's a windows10 update 1903 problem. I have the same problem in "non game maker studio " games like shovelknight, the task bar is always there, fullscreen or not.

    it's part of windows new "fullscreen optimizations"

    but some games like League of legends can run in true fullscreen somehow

    Nope, check my latest post from July 14th:
    I'm not sure what you mean. By taskbar do you mean the Windows 10 taskbar at the bottom of the desktop? I'm talking about the Window border around the Window: When I put the game in fullscreen it doesn't go in fullscreen but the window border disappears.

    When I do this, it starts with the Window border disappeared, and also the actual Window size itself is even smaller.

    Toggling fullscreen on/off puts the Window size back to normal, but it shows the same symptoms again: just disables/enables the Window border, never actually puts the game in fullscreen.

    Are you sure a Windows update is the cause of this? Because I have yet to find anyone else reporting this for GameMaker games.

    Absolutely frustrated that I can't get this solved months later.

    I was talking about the task bar in fullscreen problem. But since you don't have this problem it may not be the cause of your issue
