    Thank you Ri99. I'm always a little concerned when I post stuff, that it won't work for you guys, so it's reassuring to get positive feedback. Thanks again.  ; )

    Morning everyone,

    Just discovered something interesting on superuser.com if you want to maximize the Unity game (PCEA) window. Fire up the game and take it out of fullscreen if you have that mode switched on.

    Windows 7

    Open your task manager and on the applications tab, right click on the WGT Golf task and select maximize from the drop down menu and voila! You are now maximized.

    Windows 10

    Open your task manager and on the processes tab under apps, click the arrow to the left of golf.exe, or double click golf.exe, then right click on WGT Golf and select maximize from the drop down menu and viola! You are now maximized.

    All

    If you double click the Unity game title bar when maximized it should restore the window back to its previous size. Doing this before exiting the game should also prevent the resolution selection screen...

    ...from showing when you next launch the game.

    Accr

    Thanks to
    OlyDLG
    on superuser.com for that.

    That does work nicely,  but is a little cumbersome to do each time.  It would be very helpful if  under options the same thing could be done right from the options on the main window.

    Thanks for the link though I will use that for now and hope it gets added before going live at end of year.

    Thanks Red. I wonder if there will be anything that will solve this problem when the game launches in Steam next week, fingers crossed. ; )

    Scott your the man .

    Sometimes when i'm about to play a little white or blank rectangular shape prevents me from seeing the meter clearly.

    It moves with my curser back and forth but usually settles on the left just as i hit .

    why and how do i get rid please .

    Clipboard history

    Here's a handy tip for Windows 10 users, clipboard history.

    If you don't know about it already you can turn it on with the shortcut, Windows Key + v.

    If it isn't already switched on you will see this...

    ...just click 'turn on' to activate it.

    That may give you this pop-up...

    ...which you can close.

    Now you can copy lots of different things without losing the last thing you copied. So when you want to paste what you copied, hit the Windows key + v shortcut again, and you'll get your clipboard history...

    ...just click on any of the items in the history to paste that item. In the top right corner of each item is a menu which gives you the options to...

    • Delete
    • Pin (keeps the item on the clipboard when you turn off your PC)
    • Clear all

    Thanks to Leila Gharani for this tip.

    Thank you.

    EDIT : I think the maximum number of copies you can do, before they start falling off the bottom of the clipboard, is 25.
