If you have experienced an issue where after switching Sea of Thieves into Windowed mode that the game window becomes minimised with no obvious way to return to full screen, please try the following:
- With the Sea of Thieves tab highlighted in the task bar, press Alt+Enter. This will force the game back in to full screen mode and you can continue as normal.
- If you wish to continue playing in Windowed mode, while holding Shift+Ctrl, right click Sea of Thieves from the Task bar. Once the context menu is shown (this may take a couple of seconds) select Maximise. This will force windowed mode to be full screen again.
