How to Make Sims Not Full Screen

If you’re a fan of The Sims 4 and have been experiencing the issue of the game being too big for your screen resolution, then you’re in the right place. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through the steps to fix this issue once and for all.

First, make sure you have the Sims 4 shortcut on your desktop as this method won’t work if you launch your game from the game’s bin folder. Once you have the shortcut, right-click on it and select “Properties.” In the Properties menu, click on “Target” and click on the empty zone, then enter a space bar, a minus sign, and W. Click on “Apply” and close the menu.

Launch the Sims 4, and it should open in an 800×600 resolution. This means you’ve succeeded in fixing the issue, and it won’t be in full screen mode. Wait for the game to load.

Once the game has loaded, go to the “Options” menu and select “Game Options.” Under “Resolution,” change it to your own, but don’t click “Apply” yet. Instead, choose “Windowed,” “Fullscreen,” or “Windowed Fullscreen,” whichever option you prefer. Still, don’t click “Apply changes.”

Minimize the game, right-click on the Sims 4 shortcut, and select “Properties.” In the “Target” menu, remove the minus W, click on “Apply,” and close the menu. Open the Sims 4 again, click “Apply changes,” and you should see that your game is in perfect HD resolution with no issues.

That’s it! You’ve successfully fixed the Sims 4 resolution issue, and you can now enjoy your game without any distractions or ugly blue colors. We hope this tutorial has helped you, and see you in the game!
