    Default game window always popping up on the top of the screen

    i don't think this is a bug, but this has been pretty annoying.

    everytime i put growtopia into windowed mode, it usually pops up with the draggable tab on the top not able to be seen.
    this is fixable by shift-right clicking the game icon and moving the window with arrow keys. this is quite a hassle for me and i'm looking for a more permanent fix. this also does not happen with any other program (chrome, discord), since most of the windows are resizeable, unlike growtopia. appreciate any responses regarding this

    What is up with that taskbar?! Also, run some sort of antivirus, because you might have malware. I can't drag Growtopia, I play on PC too.

    If it's annoying for you, then
    Try this solution..

    • Right click the game (Growtopia.exe) > click "Troubleshoot Compatibility" > click "Troubleshoot Program" -> putting a check mark in "The program opens but doesn't display correctly" -> click "Next" > click "Test Program" -> click "Next" > click "Yes, save these settings for the program" > click "Close".


    • Download SWRU on http://www.scottandmichelle.net/scott/program/swru.html > Install SWRU > Open it, Checklist ☑ Visible Only > Run a Growtopia.exe (In windowed mode) > Find task "Growtopia" on SWRU, then click it > Settings the coordinates on the screen (x/y) and resize it (width/height), whatever you want (Adjust to your wish).


    Hope this works for you.

    Hiya!

    I ran into this problem recently on my computer as well. I changed the aspect-ratio in the settings and switch which of my two screens was the main screen, then the problem went away!
