How to Make Minecraft Fullscreen Borderless

Introduction

Minecraft is a popular sandbox game enjoyed by millions of players worldwide. To enhance your gaming experience, playing Minecraft in fullscreen borderless mode can be advantageous, as it allows for seamless transitions between the game and other applications, reduces screen tearing, and offers a more immersive gameplay.

Step 1: Launch Minecraft

Open the Minecraft launcher and log in to your account. Once logged in, click on "Play" to start the Minecraft game.

Step 2: Access Video Settings

Once Minecraft has launched, navigate to the main menu. From there, click on "Options" and select "Video Settings."

Step 3: Enable Fullscreen Mode

In the Video Settings menu, find the Fullscreen option. By default, Minecraft is generally set to run in windowed mode. To enable fullscreen, click on the Fullscreen option until it changes to "ON".

Step 4: Adjust Window Size

After enabling fullscreen mode, you might notice that the game might not cover the entire screen, leaving small black borders around the edges. To eliminate these borders and achieve a borderless fullscreen, follow the next steps.

Step 4.1: Open Minecraft Folder

Exit the Minecraft game and navigate to the folder where it is installed. By default, on Windows, the folder is located in C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft. On Mac, go to Library > Application Support > minecraft.

Step 4.2: Locate Options.txt File

In the Minecraft folder, locate the options.txt file. This file stores various game settings.

Step 4.3: Open and Edit Options.txt

Right-click the options.txt file and open it with a text editor, such as Notepad on Windows or TextEdit on Mac.

Step 4.4: Modify Video Settings

Within the options.txt file, locate the line that says fullscreen:true and change it to fullscreen:false. This will allow you to adjust the window size freely.

Step 4.5: Save and Close

Save the changes you made to the options.txt file and close the text editor.

Step 5: Launch Minecraft Again

Open the Minecraft launcher and start the game as you did in Step 1.
