    I always asked myself if and which are the pro-contra of the 3 modes:
    windowed
    borderless
    fullscreen

    aside from having an easier switch between different windows/applications which one should I select and why ?

    maybe with one or the other there are fps gain/loss or others ?

    • Fullscreen: Better FPS but worst integration with Windows windows. Difficult to change to other programs and easier to have a CTD when you change to other window.
    • Windowed and Borderless are similar. None of those has border. Have better integration with Windows. Less risk to have a CTD when you change the focus to another program, but worst FPS. The difference between them is that one of them can use only the Windows screen resolution (i don't remember wich one) and with the another you can change the resolution.

    And, if you want to use a 3rd party option like SimHub to display various items onscreen, you will have to use one of the two window'd options.
