If you are like me and have two screens you end up with other things going on, on one screen while you are playing games. While playing Left 4 Dead 2 the game was crashing so someone said they used borderless full screen. So I set up Team-Fortress 2 and it is so much better to have it this way. So here is a little tutorial.
- In steam open your Library of games, select the game you want and right click it to open the menu and select Properties.
- Click on Set Launch Options
- Add the “-window -noborder -novid” to the box and select OK
- Start the game like you normally would
This should work on any game any game with the Valve Source Engine based on Half-Life 2 such as Half-Life 2 and its episodes, Team-Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead 1 and 2, Day of Defeat : Source, Counter-Strike : Source and Half-Life 2 Death Match. Now I need to see if World of Warcraft has some of the same options.
The -novid option makes it so that the Valve video and the game intro video don’t play every time you load the game.
