Issue


I have installed Warcraft 3 under Windows 7 and the problem is that the game won't launch in full screen mode.

Solution


You can adjust the size of Warcraft window, via the below registry manipulation:
  • Cick Start, click run, type regedit
  • Expand the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Blizzard Entertainment/Warcraft III/Video
  • The Video entry possess to editable resheight and reswidth values. which represents the height and width of the game window.

Simply edit the value to your convenience and save your settings.
