Every time I start the game after 9.19.1 it has defaulted to windowed mode and the setting has to be manually reset to fullscreen.

I was having the same problem, it was constantly going back to windowed, had to change it to "Windowed Borderless".

check/update your video card drivers?

 

nvidia just pushed a patch that actually reversed that.  I play on a wide format monitor, and prefer to run windowed so I can watch temps on the mobo/vidcard, and a recent video card update forced it to full screen.

Exit the game.

Right click the WoT shortcut, select properties.

In the "drop down" run menu, select maximized.

Click apply.

Open settings in Game and select what you want. MAKE SURE YOU HIT APPLY, or it will go back.

Delete your Appdata cache for wot. That usually fixes it. If you do have a Nvidea card, try updating it. Otherwise, delete System 32.

edit the file

C:\Users\YOUR-USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Wargaming.net\WorldOfTanks\preferences.xml

 

& set the isWindowMaximized variable to true

 

 

<isWindowMaximized> true </isWindowMaximized>
