New World: How to Fix Windowed Mode Bug?

I’ve always been thinking about this since I was not able to get back to Fullscreen. As we all know, New World has a bug where if you, by any chance, change the game to run in windowed mode or unintentionally click alt+enter, you would stay in that way no matter what you do. Restarting the game fixes it, but it’s hard to continue your game when you know your server’s queue is high. So, let’s see how you can fix that without restarting the game?

How to fix a windowed bug in New World?

Below you can find step by step guide for fixing the windowed mode issue.

  1. Open settings
  2. Go to Visuals
  3. Select Windowed Mode
  4. Change the resolution to something lower than your current one; 1060×1024 would work.
  5. Apply those settings
  6. Change Windowed Mode to Fullscreen
  7. Change the resolution to your native one again.

Hopefully, this won’t make you restart the game, and it will work any time you want to go back to full-screen mode.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
