I am playing Mass Effect again but there doesn't appear to be an option to enable a borderless window mode in either the game or the configuration utility, leaving the game running inside of a visible window.

Is it possible to set a borderless window mode either by editing one of the configuration files or using a third party utility or some kind?


Use the following AutoHotKey Script:

WinSet, Style, -0xC00000, a
WinMove, a, , 0, 0, 1680, 1050

When you press ctrl+alt+a it will make the currently active window borderless.

Replace 1680 and 1050 with the size you want the window to be.


Mass Effect does not come with any support for borderless window mode. The only way to do so is to use a third party utility such as ShiftWindow.

There are also ways to do it with autohotkey

  • this unfortunately doesn't put ME into a borderless window for me, I get a similar effect with another utility that is meant to create borderless windows, I just end up with a window with a border...
