    If you could make the screen size (in a window) adjustable for height and width (like in the PC version with a click and drag) it would make this 7 year WGTer (and others I am sure) very happy.

    My reason is that I have never used Putter Pal or percentage to putt.  I have my own system and need 2 windows open (one on one side one on the other) to make it work and play at a good rate of speed to get in a groove.

    Just an idea.

    Ed click the gear symbol at the bottom right. Then click  video.

    Looking down you will see fullscreen, click on it to shut it off. Then beside it is resolution. keep clicking until you get to 16X9 or 1366 X 768. Click the arrow at the top to return to the previous page and it will save and prompt you to restart the app. You will have much smaller screen.

    Like Ed, I play with two monitors and maximize the gameclient on one.  I hope the screen does not disappear every time something else takes focus, as it apparently does now.

    We also need flexible resolutions/sizes, not just a few.

    If anyone is interested in a temporary solution to this screen size thing until WGT sorts it, then read on.

    I have written a short script for AutoHotKey that will expand the gamescreen with no borders to fill whatever screen size you have. You can also click on other applications that you may like to have running at the same time, without the game screen disappearing...

    If anyone is interested, join in the conversation and I will add my script and tell you what to do with it, in the nicest possible way of course, lol.  ; )

    P.S. Just because it works for me doesn't mean it'll work for everyone.

    Cheers Carl, the last and only Mac I had, did up with a belt round the waist, so I might not be much use to you on that front, hehe.

    A taxi is great, just as long as you don't start the meter until you get here, lol.  ; )

    Thank you Don. I have tried to write the script so that the game takes up all of the available screen space without bits being hidden behind the taskbar. So if you have a fat taskbar on the right for example, you'd get this...

    Can you install AutoHotKey first Woodo. Then I'll give you a small test script to see if that works first.
