    Default World of Warcraft - Fullscreen Windowed Mode

    Hi has anyone who plays wow ever had a problem with fullscreen windowed mode?

    Sometimes when I launch the game or when the graphics driver restarts because of an error, my clocks according to GPU-Z get stuck in power saving mode.

    If I change Windowed mode to fullscreen, then back to fullscreen windowed it recognises I'm playing a game and puts the clocks back to normal again.

    Just wondered if I am alone with this problem, perhaps people have seen it in other games too when they play windowed mode?

    This is with a Radeon 6870 btw

    Default Re: World of Warcraft - Fullscreen Windowed Mode

    I found a fix until this is finally fixed. Set your wow executable to Windows 7 compatibility mode. You can even set it back again afterwards and it still works.

    Obviously something to do with Windows 8 not recognising the game is running unless its in Windowed or full screen.
