  1. windows store game has to be "clicked on" to go full screen


    OK, so first of all this is the Game Pass version of FFXV. All my steam and otherwise games do NOT have this issue.


    When I start the game, it will open full screen, but I will still have the mouse pointer and if I scroll to the top, or bottom of the screen I see the "top" bar or taskbar respectively. Now, if I click on a area of the screen it will go to proper full screen, or I guess the proper word is it will focus on the game. This of course then means I don't see the mouse cursor. How the heck do I configure this so that when I start this game it will focus correctly without me having to click on it. I of course have the in game option setting set to fullscreen and if it matters I am using a Gsync compatible monitor.


    Sorry if my explanation is confusing, but this is my first Microsoft Store game, and I don't know the proper terminology.

    :)
