Borderless fullscreen with AutoHotkey scripts

I’ve got a few games that don’t have native borderless full-screen support, and I was looking for solutions. Found some, but this is by far, in my opinion, the best solution yet.

Simple, easy, elegant. It’s called AutoHotkey, and it can do so much more than just that. It started out to be just for providing keyboard shortcuts, but in time evolved into a full-fledged scripting language. It can do almost anything. It’s a macro-creation and automation application too. More after the break. Take a look at the documentation here if you are interested in creating your own macros. Now here’s the .ahk script for borderless full-screen. Copy and paste it into a text file and save as borderless_fullscreen.ahk .

However, this script depends on the game being run in windowed mode and your desktop resolution. If your resolution is any other than 1920×1080 then you need to adjust the code in line 7 and 21.

Once you’ve done that, double-click the .ahk script and off you go! You should see a green H icon in your taskbar, which means the AutoHotkey script is running. Then press CTRL+ALT+F or G (it depends on the game, some work with the first, others with the second) for the borderless, full-screen mode.

Or if you don’t want to do all that, just download the compiled ahk2exe executable I made for y’all: Borderless_Fullscreen_32bit.exe (adfree)Borderless_Fullscreen_64bit.exe (adfree) Oh right, I almost forgot. Because you all are such a paranoid bunch: 32bit virustotal scan, 64bit virustotal scan.
