I have been a Forza fan for as long as I can remember. I was extremely excited about the release of the game. The day finally arrived and I booted it up excited to rip a Lambo through the Mexican desert.
When I launched the game it started on my other monitor. I wanted to play the game on my dedicated gaming monitor for the best possible experience. However, when I went into the game settings, there was no option to switch the monitors.
After a while I finally found a solution to switch monitors in full screen mode in Forza Horizon 5. Let’s take a look at how you can do it.
How To Switch Monitors In Forza Horizon 5
Most games have an option to switch monitors in full screen in their Video Settings menu. Unfortunately that was not the case for Forza.
There are two methods you can use to change monitors on Forza:
Switch Monitors Using A Keyboard Shortcut
If you want to play full screen on your second monitor (which you probably do) then you will want to use this method.
- Open Forza Horizon 5 in full screen from the options menu.
- Once the game is on full screen, hold down Windows key + Shift + Arrow Key. Click the arrow key in the direction of the screen you want to switch to.
- Your game should now switch to your second monitor in full-screen mode
You can now enjoy Forza in all it’s glory on the monitor you intended.
Switch Monitors In Windowed Mode
If you do not want to play in full-screen mode and are okay playing in windowed mode you can simply drag your window onto your second monitor.
- Open your Forza Horizon 5 Video Settings
- Select windowed mode
- Drag your window to your second monitor
- Change your resolution in Forza to the same resolution as your second monitor.
You can now play on your second monitor, however, it will be in windowed mode which isn’t the ideal playing format but it is a workaround. If you want to experience Forza in all it’s glory, I would recommend using method 1 and playing in Full Screen mode.
You should now be able to play Forza Horizon 5 on the monitor you intended to. Enjoy racing through the vast open world of Forza in beautiful full screen. Let us know if this shortcut helped you down in the comments.
