In Windows 10, under X-plane 11 graphics settings there is no windowed mode, only full screen, instructor, and 2D. Help. Thank you.
Your concern regarding the absence of windowed mode in X-Plane 11's graphics settings on Windows 10 certainly rings a bell, and it is something that can be addressed. Let's walk through the steps to help you find and enable this particular feature.
1. Confirm Your X-Plane Version:
First and foremost, ensure that you're running the latest version of X-Plane 11. Sometimes, these issues may arise from running an older build, so updating may solve the problem.
2. Manually Activate Windowed Mode:
Pressing the Alt + Enter keys simultaneously can often toggle between windowed and full-screen modes, even if the option is not visible in the settings.
3. Modify Configuration Files:
If the above solutions don't work, you might need to manually edit the configuration files.
4. Additional Consideration:
If you're running multiple monitors or a specialized setup, this might alter how X-Plane behaves in terms of display modes. It may be worthwhile to review the official X-Plane multi-monitor setup guide if this is applicable to your situation.
Note that the solutions provided here are mainly tailored to X-Plane 11, but some of these tips (especially the Alt + Enter key combination) may apply to other flight simulator platforms like Microsoft Flight Simulator as well.
I hope the above steps assist you in resolving the issue. Finding and enabling windowed mode in X-Plane 11 can be a bit tricky, but these solutions have helped others in the past. If none of the above work, don't hesitate to reach back out.
From my knowledge, community and support are always here to assist with these issues. Happy flying!
