Metro 2033 will not go fullscreen

I tinkered with the user.cfg before, and I went back in to change it, but I can still see the taskbar when I open Metro. I when into Steam and verified the files, and it re-downloaded 1 thing at it didn't help.
I've tried F11 and Alt+Enter.

I would suggest you delete the config file and reinstall the game. See if that helps.

The one you "tinkered" with.

But fefore doing that try changing the resolution and see if that helps. If not, try the suggestion I posted.

Still not fullscreen. I guess I have to re-install it.

Don't forget to delete the file first.

Good luck

Mine has done that on occasion.
If I have any other Windows open, even if minimized to taskbar, it can cause it.

Make sure you have no other windows open when you launch the game. Thats what worked for me when it would do it.

It's such an odd bug, though I'm lucky enough to never have gotten it (knocks on wood)

BTW I was a little bemused to see that there's no toggle switch in the options sections under video

I just reinstalled it, and there's nothing different it says 'fullscreen on' in the user.cfg but it isn't fullscreen, I can still see the taskbar.

- What resolution are you usig for the game?
- What are you using for a monitor?
- Have you checked your video card's settings?
- Do you have the latest patch for the game?

BTW I too have a 6950 2GB unlocked to a 6970 and the game is running fullscreen at 1920x1080

Metro 2033 Setup not launching.
I can't seem to get this to go. :/ The disk has a few minor scratches. I bought it used, so that's to be expected. As far as I can tell it's nothing major. I don't believe it's my drive either. I just installed Escape From Butcher Bay a couple days ago and it went fine. Autorun pops up,...
