Summary0023140: UWP: No way to set your application to be full screen through either GGS or Alt + Enter
DescriptionAs the title says if you want to change your application to be full screen you can't.

Checking the MSDN it seems like this is a preference you set before you start your game (GGS) or something which you can change at runtime (Alt + Enter)

Here is the article which provides the code we would need to implement for this to work:
Steps To Reproduce1) Create project
2) Change target to UWP
3) Run it
4) See that it is not full screen
5) Press Alt + Enter, nothing happens
6) Close game
7) Open GGS
8) Change to UWP tab, under Graphics see that there is no way to specify full screen on start up

Fixed this and related issues.

- window_set_fullscreen() and window_get_fullscreen() now work in UWP apps.
- alt-enter can now be used to toggle between fullscreen and windowed mode in UWP apps (if allowed).
- added options to global game settings to control whether the game starts in fullscreen and whether the user can use alt-enter to switch.
