Why or why not?

 

I personally don't because I would constantly have to keep switching to Chrome to get my route, and then back to FSX to import it into the FMC. What about you?

I can't get my CDU II to work in Full screen, so I use Windowed. Plus, IMO Windowed looks less stretched out than Full Screen does, on my monitor, anyway.

I run it in Full Screen because I feel like it.

I run it fullscreen because I paid $1,000 for a 40inch LED TV for a computer monitor and I'm using every darn inch of it. :)

Window, because I find its more stable in that way, and I really like to read forums on long haul flights, so its easier to switch in browser with FSX running in window mode.

Full Screen and never switch out of FSX. I have a laptop on the side if I need to check for a chart or map or something else (like AVSIM).

Full screen. I had issues with alt tab and the windows key to minimize but found that alt-enter works without any problems... as long as I'm not running enbseries :Hypnotized:

Windowed cause I like to have some 2D panels viewable, but not in the way, at the same time. Would really like to use my laptop for 2D stuff but I have yet to find a program that can do this.

Windowed. Maybe I'll get around to getting a laptop this year and running EFB on it networked.

I'm trying to transition to full screen as it seems the recent tweaks need Full Screen.

Full screen only. First, I find it far more immersive not to have anything else on the screen except the VC (i.e., full screen enhances my suspension of disbelief). Second, I have a second PC beside my FSX PC that I use for networked FSX applications and for other things such as surfing the web, consulting aircraft manuals, etc., while I fly.

I run in windowed mode but I use the AutoHotkey script (search the board for it) to make my window the size of my screen so I don't have a titlebar. So it's really no difference except I can use my other monitors to display non-FSX stuff

No.

Better performance in windowed mode.
