Exe window size is limited to desktop size. I couldn't find where this is specified, I wouldn't mind compiling a new runtime temporarily if that's the only way to fix it. But I couldn't figure out where the change was needed. I need to make a window larger than the current resolution so it goes offscreen

I think the Windows OS prevents you creating a window larger than the screen. Why would you need that, anyway? You could never see all of it, so you can just fake it by scrolling.

I run my monitor at 1024 x 768 and when I try out other people's games (games that don't go full-screen) they always run in a window bigger than my screen. Every time I have to change my resolution to play them!

Why would someone make a game that is bigger than 1024x768 by default? That's a major design mistake since most people's screen are 1024x768. The game should start as 1024 or smaller and allow for different screen sizes, as i'm doing on mine
