Solution 1 – Change the window border

Players were facing problems with Team Fortress 2 ever since the Technical Preview, and they are present even after the full version came out. Users eventually found easy solution that solved the most cases with Team Fortress 2 in Windows 10 Technical Preview, and reportedly, it will solve the problem in the full version, as well. All you have to do is to change the window border, and the game should work normally. Just follow these instructions to solve the Team Fortress problem in Windows 10:

  1. Open your Steam Client
  2. Go to Library
  3. Right-click on Team Fortress 2 and go to Properties
  4. Under General, open Set Launch Options
  5. Enter the following command and press Enter or click OK
    • -windowed -noborder
  6. Try to open Team Fortress 2 again and see if there are any issues

According to the reports, this workaround fixed the majority of issues, but if it didn’t get the job done for you, you can try the following solution as well.

If noborder command didn’t work, you can try the similar solution, and hopefully everything will be fixed. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Check your screen resolution, if you don’t know it, here’s how to find out:
    • Right-click on Desktop and go to Display Settings
