Total War: Warhammer III – How to Fix Windowed Mode Offset Problems

How to Fix Windowed Mode Offset Problems (Buttons Not Clickable)

I’ve seen a couple of people here and on the official forums that had problems running the game in windowed mode.

For some reason the game sometimes sets an offset to the windowed mode which results in buttons not being clickable anymore or part of the UI being off-screen. Because I wasn’t able to fix it in game (thanks to the buttons not being clickable anymore after turning off windowed mode).

I went into the AppData folder:

  • C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\The Creative Assembly\Warhammer3\scripts

Opened the preferences.script.txt and set x_pos and y_pos to 0.

I then started the game again and everything worked perfectly. Figured this might be useful for some of you.


  1. Applied this fix and it seems to be working now! Just remember to put the game in windowed mode and close it before you attempt the fix.

    • My problem was setting in Windowed mode would make the entire game window black. I left it in full screen, exited, and opened the file. There are x and y_res options right above that for changing the resolution to what you need. I set mine to 3840×2160 and x\y_pos of 0 and it worked like a charm. Also about 1/3 the way down is the UI section where you can set the ui_scale to a value between .5 and 2. I set mine to 1.6 and it is perfect.
