When the borderless window is not working in the game, there are some solutions you can try to fix the issue. First, ensure your graphics card drivers have been updated to the latest version. If not, go ahead and visit the website of your device’s manufacturer and install the latest updates.
The other option is exiting the game and heading to the installation folder. There, you will find the file names user.settings, and tap to open it using a text editor. Search for fullscreen=true and change it to become fullscreen=false.
This will change the game to run in windowed mode. Moreover, you will need to disable any third-party software you may be using since they may be the reason for the interference with your game’s windowed mode.

Should I Play Witcher 3 in Borderless Window or Full Screen?
If you have a powerful computer and want to enjoy the game with the best graphics and performance, using the full-screen mode would be better.
