Specs: Windows 8 Pro 64 bit, 3.401 GHz / 12269 MB
Running Windows 8 Pro - some games only run in windowed mode, even when tried in compatibility modes. Try full screen - game closes down then re-appears still windowed?It has been suggested I reduce the resolution from 1920 x 1080 but reluctant to do this - help!

"It has been suggested I reduce the resolution from 1920 x 1080"

If that's the monitor's native resolution, there's no reason to change it. However, there should be resolution options in the game's menu settings.

✔ Best Answer
By reducing the screen rez I found that the two games that ran in windowed mode work fine - obviously they didn't like Windows 8.
