Recently on my MacBook Pro when I launched DOTA 2, the dock was showing and the menu bar, buttons were being cut-off and the game was hard to use. The issue seems to stem from how Steam sometimes launches the game client.
The fix is rather simple and worked for me.
- Open up the Steam client
- Click the Library tab
- Right click on Dota 2
- Select Properties
- Click on the General tab (it should be selected by default)
- Click on the “Set Launch Options” button
- In the box that pops up enter -fullscreen
Dude it worked but god damn those stupid devs..
It did work. I wonder why didn’t they just give a checkbox to tick “fullscreen”
this didn’t work. I still have the menu bar in front of my game 🙁 any suggestions?
Thank You ! It worked.
Thank you for this useful article solving my problem:)

When in-game, my view was zoomed in. I cant zoomed out even after changing resolution.. Any solution on this? (Running on mac by the way)
Worked but I can no longer alt+tab out of the game, anyone else have the same issue ?
it worked, i just wonder why they don’t put it full screen as default!!!
thanks for the tip!
How can i return it ?
I can swap the descktop with 3 finger
I entered everything but it didn’t work. Still have all the menu bars all over the place.
