Can someone try this startup rule bellow with any game that allow windowed mode:

Code
Resize: ???? X ???? (your screen resolution)
Align: top-left

Border and title bar: remove
Resizable frame: remove


Results:

Single monitor: taskbar will keep in top like default Windows behavior.
Two monitor: taskbar will be hidden until you hit win key or alt+tab/switch window.

I would like to keep the behavior of multi monitor environment even at single monitor. Is it possible?

ps: not all games allow remove window parts, I tried this time with Warcraft 3, Starcraft 2 and a recent 007 game, if necessary I can test more games.

My idea is to run games at windowed mode as fullscreen alike, the advantage is no delay to switch tasks. Valve games has similar feature with parameter -windowed -noborder to all games made by them.

Hello zegames zegames,

Thanks for the post.

Could you clarify what results do you want to achieve?

Please try to use the autohide option in your taskbars.

Best regards.

Hello zegames zegames,

Please, add to your specific settings the "Fix minimal size to (your screen resolution)" option and inform me about your results.

Best regards.
