    After my latest windows 10 update, when I open the Task Manager to right click on golf.exe to make the early access version full screen, the option is no longer there. Has this been reported yet?

      I have been having the same problem . As I have been stuck in full screen mode for a few weeks .

    .

      Clicking Minimize does nothing .

      So . On the bottom right of the PCEA main there is a settings button .

      Now I am off full screen .

      Lol . Now I have to get the right resolution & ratio .

      I also had to reinstall and down load . Because it literally takes 5 minutes to set up and 3 minutes between holes , and changing settings . The reinstall did not help that . It will take me 30 minutes to go through the resolutions . I am not going to bother with it . And is the other main reason I won't be playing PCEA .

    Have you expanded the golf.exe task to show WGT Golf?

    It wasn't expandable but windows updated again last night and fixed the problem. Task Manager is back to normal.

    I did download the Unity Resolution Picker, that was a nice alternative, but I guess not necessary any more.

    Double clicking the game window title bar should take the game out of fullscreen activated by the task manager.

    I don't think trying to uninstall the game through the WGT Launcher will remove it, it'll just uninstall the launcher. You might need to get rid of the topgolf folder and even go into the registry and delete the WGT key. Create a restore point first though.

     ? Where is the topgolf folder ?

      I found the WGT.exe in the registry . You think I should delete it ?

      Lol . This is a moderated thread for me . I'll PM .

    Scott, got a question.

    Is there a way to view mobile tournament results from a browser? I know they're not tappable (clickable) in your score history unlike other tournament results BUT! I remember when one mobile tournament result was displayed in my activity once, it was clickable and showed the relevant leaderboard info so it means it can be seen from a browser, just that WGT doesn't allow it for some reason.

    What do you say, bro?

    Hi Simon,
    The short answer is I have absolutely no clue.
    I have no involvement with anything mobile on WGT, so not a scooby bud.
    Sorry about that.  : (
