Unable to resize/move Charts program

I’ve been using the Navigraph Charts program for a while now and usually have the application open on my second monitor when flying. About a month ago, I noticed that I couldn’t resize or drag the desktop application around anymore and it is stuck in full screen. I have other programs open on my monitors for my flight so having the application stuck on full screen makes it a bit difficult to keep an eye on approach plates as well as any other information I’d need such as frequency changes and METARs etc.

Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hello Charlie! Welcome to the new forum!

Let’s troubleshoot together. Are you still able to see the app title and the buttons to control the window, as in the image below?

If not, then it does indeed sound like your app has been put into fullscreen mode. If that’s the case, one solution may be to change a line of code in a file called window-state.json. This can be done by following these steps (Windows only):

  1. Press ⊞ Win + R
  2. Type %appdata%/navigraph_charts into the field labeled “Open”
  3. Open window-state.json (Perhaps without the .json extension) in an editor of your choice (Notepad works just fine!)
  4. Look for the word "isFullScreen": and make sure that the value that comes right after it is false.

The file contents should now look something like this (the numbers will vary):

{
  "width": 1322,
  "height": 800,
  "x": -1337,
  "y": 246,
  "isMaximized": false,
  "isFullScreen": false,
  "displayBounds": { "x": -1920, "y": 174, "width": 1920, "height": 1080 }
}

If this does not resolve the issue, please do not hesitate to tell me and we’ll figure it out together!

We are unsure as to how the application got put in fullscreen mode in the first place and apologize for any inconvenience caused.

Cheers!

Hi, Malte.

Thanks a lot for the reply. I followed the steps and it seems to have done the trick so thanks a lot for your help. I, myself, am really unsure how the program got put into fullscreen; I just opened it up one day and realised that I couldn’t move it about or resize it.

Again, thanks for your help with this.

Charlie.
