I am enjoying playing through the MSX library, however I prefer playing in windowed mode. I have a very large monitor and playing in windowed mode means I have a very small field of view.

I would like to double or triple the size of the windowed mode as I do with other emulators. Is this possible with blueMSX? If so how can I do it.

Thank you

Hello and first welcome to Smile

Here is a list with all the short cut keys.

there are options to resize the window.
LAlt+F10 Sets the screen size to 320x240 pixels.
LAlt+F11 Sets the screen size to 640x480 pixels.
LAlt+Enter Toggles fullscreen.

The last one is actually a common used short key in many older PC games to switch between windowed and full screen mode.
Good luck! :)

openMSX goes up to 4x.
Or do you want to stick to blueMSX?

Another option, if you find FS too large, is to play with your monitor's and/or video driver's resolution & scaling options. (So, use a lower res than your default desktop res, & put scaling to 1:1 / centered / or 'no scaling'.)

With my windows 7, I can do BlueMSX full screen.
If the screen is 16: 9, better remove the horizontal stretch.
In the OpenMSX, there is no problem. With F12 we have full screen.
Or maybe I did not understand the question?

The answer is already given. But you are correct Smile i prefer 99% OpenMSX for most things
