How to Enter Windowed Mode in Rogue Tower

You can change from fullscreen to window mode in Rogue Tower by pressing the Alt+Enter keys together. After pressing the keys, your window should get slightly smaller, and now have the minimize, maximize, and close button visible on the top right of the window.

That’s step one, but this doesn’t really allow you to adjust the window size as some other games do. Luckily, there’s a fairly easy solution.

How to Resize the Window in Rogue Tower

Steam allows players to customize how a game launches from the client. This is nothing unique to Rogue Tower, but we can take advantage of a few commands to set predefined window sizes. Go to Rogue Tower and right-click it to open properties when you open Steam.

The Launch Options section is on the general tab of any Steam game properties. From there, you can enter this command:

  • -screen-width 1280 -screen-height 720 -screen-fullscreen 0

The above command changes the game to window mode and sets the resolution to 1280×720. While this is a common smaller resolution that should fit your needs, you can change the options to other resolutions like 1600×900, 1024×728, or any combinations of widths and heights.

Now you can enjoy Rogue Tower in window mode!
