Hello, i decided to play bf3 again. Havent played it for 2 weeks.

Once the game is loading or loaded/ playing.... The game wont go properly fullscreen

I can't get the borders away. I can still see the START BAR of windows. I tried everything, Alt + Enter, still not proper fullscreen.

In game settings, already on fullscreen.

Latest Driver (ust updated and still not fullscreen)

Any solutions ?

GO to options.
GO to video.
GO to fullscreen.
Go to the arrow next to the on/off
Go hit the arrow a few times.
Go hit it to your desired setting.
Go to apply resoultion.
Exit.
Save.
Done.

just make sure in settings full screen is checked. then do what ninja quick said.

Or just change settings in game, then restart the game engine...(restart the game)

Are you running any form of remote desktop?

Kill it.

Teamviewer host software is known to cause BF3 to not go into full screen mode, was doing it to me so I kept havign to remember to kill it before loading the game. However I have since discovered that you don't have to kill it completely, if you just disable 'QuickConnect', which is found under advanced options in the Teamviewer host options, then the game loads into full screen fine without having to kill the process completely

Yup I installed Team Viewer and the next time starting BF3 poof.... no full screen or alt enter to fix. I just exited TV (bottom right by time) and click the BF3 game that was running and..... poof ... killing on full screen again.

TeamViewer is a remote desktop/VNC client. If you don't know what it is, you probably don't have it. It doesn't come installed stock on any machine that I've ever seen.

If you have anything else LIKE that (UltraVNC, Vine, etc.) closing it may help.

Hi all, i also started to have this issue today. Only happens on my native resolution (1600x900, on any refresh rate). If i try any other resolution the game can actually stay in fullscreen. Tried all the procedures you guys told above still no change. Every time i try to alt+enter the game it's just flickers and i can't play with my game not on fullscreen. Idk why but everytime i hit the map extension button i get a 1 sec freez or when i die. If anyone knows how to fix this, please share :)
