Me too, it is not possible to play, you get only half the screen.

If you are referring to the "Window" problem, my resolution is higher than recommended.

How about a real fix

For those of you having the Windowed/Full Screen issue... this is not a "Real" fix, but it did get my screen back.

I downloaded the Collector's Edition and played it for a few minutes (it does not have an option to turn off full screen).

When I went back to the regular Fairway, my Full Screen was back.

I tried playing in the minimized screen couldn't play because you can't see anything and now I can't see the option to change back to the larger screen. Can somebody please help with this issue?

I asked for help by e-mailing tech support about this issue on 11-2 and still have not heard anything back from them. It is not my screen resolution and uninstalling and restalling does not help.

ok so someone put a post on here that really helped and i dont even know how it worked but it did....so download the downloadable version of the fairway game collectors edition and then play it for a little bit and then go to the setting and see if it has the option for full screen ...it dosnt but it was worth a look .... so then open up fairway that you have the old one and it should come back to the original screen and the best thing is you dont have to lose all ur games

Can't get screen to maximize after I shrunk it to a window. I am not that tech savvy so I need help. I unistalled and restarted my pc and then reinstalled and the same problem continues. Irritated.

HELP... I bought this game and am having a great time playing it. However, in the options section I accidentally clicked on taking the game from full screen to window size. I now cannot get it to show the entire game, therefore, I cannot go to the options tab again to change it back. I have uninstalled it and reinstalled, but without success. Any ideas??

On the sixth course where the cards are all scrambled and not in stacks I have experinced a problem. Down-facing cards were completely uncovered but they never flipped over to be in play. I ended that hole with nothing but these three down-facing cards and no way to access them.

My Fairway game is stuck in windowed mode and the option button is not viewable in order to go to full screen. Any suggestions
