FSX Borderless Windowed Mode in Win10 FSX Steam

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is a Win10 issue or a FSX Steam issue.  But since upgrading to Win 10 and to FSX Steam from the boxed version, my FSX Borderless app from the avsim library doesn't seem to work.  I put the exe file in the FSX Steam/common/FSX folder. 

 

Does it need to be in a different folder to execute?

the exe.xml will need to point to that new location:

 

"C:\Users\[you]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX[-SE]\exe.xml"

I use the exe to launch fsx, I don't think it's enough to just place it in the root folder? It is working fine like that for me in win 10

The "FSX Borderless" tool from the library doesn't work anymore for me on W10. It used to work fine before. Weird.

 

This one works though:

https://github.com/Codeusa/Borderless-Gaming/releases

 

I tried this tool which works pretty nicely unfortunately though it doesn't allow me to access the taskbar during the borderless mode.  I like to be able to pull up other things like ASN, charts, etc.  I'll keep hunting for an alternative.

I just tried FSX-Borderless.exe with FSX-SE on Win10 - seemed to work. I run up FSX-SE, then while it is in windowed mode I double clicked the exe. The FSX-SE window became borderless and captionless. After that FSX-Borderless closed, and had to be run again when I made the FSX-SE window full screen and back to borderless. A much more powerful version comes included with the payware IF10 >augmented, restores undocked window positions too. Other than that I don't know of any other programs to do it.

That's probably it Bryn. Steam Ed. elevates privileges to Admin, which means other programs interfacing with it might require the same access permissions.

The FSX Borderless program is not professional and not Always you get a clear FullScreen.

 

A program should remain open and should have the possibility to "minimize" and stay alive but not visible.

FullSize is using 2 buttons  ON  OFF  +  a Keyboard Shortcut for toggle. So you are free to select what you want.

The only thing you should do, close the FSX Menu.

From the List select your Application - Read the About -

 

Until the October 27. 2015 you can download for free the "FullSize" application from the Intrasystem Web-Site.

 

The Link is:

http://www.intrasystem.it/FSX/FSXFullsize/RFO%20FullSize.rar

 

be careful there is a space between .../RFO FullSize.rar. copy link and add 1 space + FullSize.rar.

MODERATOR's Note: I fixed the blank space problem. In the future, replace blank spaces with %20... :Nerd:

 

x avoiding web-scanning you must use the following code:

 

User:  fsxfullsize

 

Pwd: fsxdownload54321

 

That's it.

Thanks for the Fullzise program link.

 

Because there is no readme file with instructions for its installation and use, could you provide instructions on how to use this certainly fine and useful program? 

 

Thanks!

There is no need for a description. Just press the About button and read.

 

Download is now stopped.

 

Enjoy

 

 

You should use the MouseClicks program that is very useful but not easy at the beginning.

The download for FULLSIZE is again open.

 

I will leave it open the 27. October 2015 (europa time)

 

Download link is now:

http://www.intrasystem.it/FSX/FSXFullsize/RFOFullSize.rar

 

User: fsxfullsize

 

Pwd: fsxdownload54321

 

There is a simple and logical modification. FullSize can't open itself to 'Full Size'.

 

To be honest i woul have expected that someone noticed this cosmetic detail.

 

Unzip where you like. For easy access create a Desktop connection.

Hi EGA,

just one question. Does FullSize work as expected ? Should work with any Windows Platform. FullSize is a professional application for border/less screens using 2 buttons and a Keyboard shortcut.

If someone missed the download option, the download could be available again if interested.

Hello Raimund,

 

No, unfortunately I cannot have the program working (FSX-SE in Win 7). When I select FSX and click "On" on the FullSize window, everything freezes up. After closing the FullSize program with task manager, FSX is just a black window and I have to force it down also.

 

Thanks anyway.

Hi ega,

 

FullSize has been created with Win 8.1 and should work with Win 7. Also Win 10 no problem. (64-bit)

 

Did you open the program with "administrator" privilege ? (also FSX ?)

 

FSX is installed in a different Folder like  C:\FSX\.... or the standard folder C:\programs(x86) ?

Always better to run FSX within a different Folder like C:\FSX\......

 

Did you select "Microsoft Flight Simulator X" (or your SE Program Title) on the List before you click on the [ON] button  as explained with the [About] ? (or use the Keyboard short-cut)

Before you close FullSize (not system-try) deselect Full-Screen [OFF].

 

This is the first issue i read about.  FSX-SE not tested. Try again and revert please.

 

Be sure, this has nothing to do with the "FullSize" program itself.

 

regards,

Raimund

Hi Raimund,

 

I run a few more tests today and  everything worked as advertised.... no idea what was wrong but Fulsize program works now 100% with FSX-SE (and also with Prepar3D v3).

 

Thanks for your assistance and for the program.

 

Kind regards

I have been using Auto-Hotkeys (AHK) for several years and it works perfectly with any of my programs on Win7. Very easy to install, free,and my download had an example script that worked without a hitch.

Would provide more details but am not near my FSX PC at the moment.

I've been successfully using "Always on Top" and "Windows Borderless Gaming 2.1.0.0", mostly borderless only.

Hey guys.

 

I can't make FSX-borderless. I tried from Avsim library and no luck. I read here it is no longer working from the library so I found another one online

 

http://msflights.net/forum/showthread.php?4054-Borderless-FSX-and-P3D-(multiple-monitors)

 

Still no luck. It shows Script Paused. 

Per suggestion above I dropped exe file into C:\Users\[you]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX[-SE]\exe.xm, nothing..

Looks like the link was offered here is no longer available. Any other idea where/how can I get working FSX-borderless? 

W7 Pro, FSX-SE

 

Thx for looking.

What is this program used for? I understand what it says it does, but what extra features in FSX does it allow us to use, or do that we can't do without it?

 

Sorry if this is redundant, but I am need here and just trying to learn.

The download link is not working for FSXFullsize. Can you re-upload it?

I tried FSX:SE with Borderless-gaming 8.4 from github, but no lock (both borderless-gaming and FSX:SE ran by admin).

Are you are referring to programs that remove borders? FSX cannot by itself manage full screen flight. One of the menu bars/sides will still be present.

When we refer to "borderless windows" we mean that the entire monitor screen shows only FSX (or any other program you choose).

Using AutoHotKeys the only border showing is the small FSX menu bar at the top of the screen. It can be hidden/shown by pressing the ALT key.
