You can play Diablo 4 either in the windowed mode or the fullscreen mode:
- Windowed mode: This mode allows you to run the game inside a window that doesn’t cover your whole screen. You can resize it, move it around, and easily access other applications or monitors. However, this mode may reduce the game’s performance and immersion, as well as cause some compatibility issues with certain games or resolutions.
- Fullscreen mode: This mode allows you to run the game in full control of the screen’s output, covering the entire desktop and hiding all other applications. This mode may improve the game’s performance and immersion, as well as enable some features like HDR or G-Sync. However, this mode may make it harder to switch to other tasks or monitors, as well as cause some problems with minimizing the game.
This quick article will show you a couple of different ways to switch between the windowed mode and the fullscreen mode when playing Diablo 4.
