Every time I launch Tomb Raider, it launches in windowed mode. I have checked both full screen and exclusive fullscreen option. Resolution is 1366 x 768. What is causing this?

This is my configuration:

Windows 7 64 bit
Intel Core i5 2.3GHz
Geforce GT 525M
  • Windows modes?? – user28379 Mar 9 '13 at 2:12
  • @jeffreylin_ I believe he means "Tomb Raider is launching in windowed mode" and he wishes the game to launch in full screen mode instead. – SimonL Mar 9 '13 at 2:42
  • @SimonL: Yes, I am sorry If I wasnt clear. Any suggestions? – Yogi Mar 9 '13 at 2:59

Try unchecking the 'Exclusive Full Screen' option (leaving the 'full screen' option checked). This worked for me on Win7 with an ATI Radeon 7800 series.
