With games like CoD MW3/BO2 and BF3, I've been able to change the display mode from the default fullscreen to fullscreen (windowed), this allows me to select off the game more easily, which I prefer. I've been unable to find a similar feature for Assassin's Creed III.

Is there an option to do this?
If not, why not?


  • Why not can't be answered; that's a "Why did the devs do it this way?" sort of question.

  • ALT+ENTER or F11 are common shortcuts in windows. whether or not this works is something the game devs would be able to answer

Unfortunately, it is not available, see PC gaming wiki at http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Assassin's_Creed_III#Video_settings.

When giving the answer I totally forgot there are some tools that can force fullscreen windowed in games that do not support it. Personally I have never used any of them, so I cannot comment, but http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Borderless_fullscreen_windowed has plenty of info on the subject, as well as a list of tools and links to them.
