Hi all, trying out 0.4.7.1 in Win10

Whatever size I have the Freeorion window, the title bar obscures the top part of the game window - the turn button, and all the game subwindow icons (research, production, ships, pop, detection etc. etc.). I can't seem to do anything about this, and it's unplayable.

Didn't happen last time I played (a few months ago)

Any tips?

Thanks

When playing with the Video options, both "Window Height" and "Window Top Position" cause the window to shrink (to tiny) when I click Apply, rather than changing the position or size.

Sorry to hear you are having trouble; sounds quite strange. Do you know what the resolution of your screen is?

Two possible solutions from a Win10 standpoint;
Move the Taskbar to the bottom. (Probably undesirable since you moved it to the top)
Select 'Small Taskbar buttons' from the Taskbar settings menu.

That sounds strange - does that happen while in full-screen or windowed mode?
Try changing to the other one in the options > video (don't forget to push "apply" at the bottom).

Thanks for the replies - it might have been the difference between a maximised window and full-screen mode. Will try next time. Important to note that it wasn't the Win10 taskbar that was the problem, it was the title bar of the Freeorion window itself. I guess it wasn't properly full-screen because there should have been no title bar - but I'm not familiar with the pitfalls of Win10.

For this sort of issue, screenshots would be preferable.
