Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world RPG from CD Projekt Red and is now available on multiple platforms. The launch isn’t ideal, and there are a lot of problems that players across all platforms are facing. For the most part, the PC version is the best way to experience the game right now, and last-gen consoles have suffered the most. If you are on the PC version and want to enable the Cyberpunk 2077 exclusive fullscreen mode, here is how you can do it.
Now, CD Projekt Red has apologized for the current state of the game and has promised to fix the various problems players are facing. The option to refund the game is also available through PlayStation and Xbox Store.
Enable the Cyberpunk 2077 Exclusive Fullscreen Mode
The default fullscreen mode in Cyberpunk 2077 is actually borderless windowed. For most games, running the game in true fullscreen, or exclusive fullscreen mode can potentially increase the framerate you are getting.
This has been the case for users that are currently playing Cyberpunk 2077 as well. To enable exclusive fullscreen, you can follow the steps below.
- Open Windows Run by pressing the Windows + R keys together
- Enter the following location, and press OK
%LOCALAPPDATA%\CD Projekt Red\Cyberpunk 2077
- Here, open the UserSettings.json file using a text editor like Notepad
- Press Ctrl + F, and search for the following
"name": "WindowMode", "type": "string_list", "is_dynamic": true, "value": "BorderlessWindowed", "index": 1
- Replace this with the following
"name": "WindowMode", "type": "string_list", "is_dynamic": true, "value": "Fullscreen", "index": 2
- Save the file, and then exit
Now, when you relaunch the game, and the fullscreen mode will actually be exclusive fullscreen. This is to make sure you get the best possible framerate from the display settings at least.
The developers likely have a long road ahead to fix all the bugs, and technical problems players are facing. You can read the apology posted by CD Projekt Red below.
