We’ve all dealt with the frustration of starting up a new game, and it opens up in a tiny window that takes up a quarter of the screen. GTA V, released onto Android and PC, is one of the many games that suffer from this annoyance. While this is easily remedied, we know that you don’t want to go and dig through the plethora of available settings to try and find the correct one, so we’ll show you exactly how to make GTA V full screen in this guide.
How to make GTA V Full Screen
Before you go through all of the steps below, try pressing Alt+Enter on your keyboard. This is a universal shortcut that works in most games and applications to switch to full-screen mode, but if it doesn’t work, you’ll need to adjust the settings manually. This guide works for all versions of the game as the general game settings don’t change regardless of the launcher you’re using. Right, let’s get started!
Step 1: Access game settings
First, start up the game and load into either the story mode or online mode; it doesn’t really matter which one. Then press Esc to bring up the game menu and select Settings.
Step 2: Open Graphics
Now select Graphics from the options on the right-hand side.
Step 3: Change the resolution
Look for the Screen Type option and set it to Full Screen. Then right underneath that, set the Resolution to your screen’s native resolution. When you’re done, press Spacebar to apply the settings, and the game will immediately switch to full-screen mode.
Crystal Clear Views
Graphics cards and monitors are incredibly powerful these days and are capable of delivering beautiful images. If you combine this with the stunning graphics in GTA V, which still hold up against new games eight years after its release, you really want to experience the game in its full glory. Nobody knows why some games will always default down to the old resolutions in new games, but luckily, it’s easily remedied, and you can get back to gaming with crystal clear images.
