Default Resolution question

Any chance I can run the game in 1920x1080 in windowed mode on Windows 10 without having a desktop resolution of 1080p?

1920x1080 is one of the old style 4:3 "square" modes, you will need a monitor which supports it - old CRT monitors like IILyamas did, but modern flatscreen ones use wider ratios, it may fit on a 4K monitor?.

But Desktop resolution is what is used to support modern non-CRT screens. Desktop resolution reads your screen mode and fits to that.

Thank you for your reply, but unless I am having a stroke (possible), 1920x1080 is 16:9 resolution, widescreen, the "FullHD" resolution.
So...I am confused.
Desktop resolution is cool, but I tend to want to have the game open in a window and have other windows open at the same time, for example YouTube. My monitor has a resolution of 2560x1440 so having the game at 1920x1080 works really well for me. If there is no way, I understand as this isn't a resolution even considered when the game was being made, but I thought to ask anyway in case someone has an idea.
Thanks.

Windowed mode offers 1600x1280 which is the one I was thinking of. That should fit on your screen?.

There wont be any changes to the list of fixed resolutions, which were all for XP and earlier versions of windows.

Desktop resolution was the change for post XP and modern flat-screen monitors with wider formats.

Unfortunate, but understandable. Thank you for the clarification.
1600x1280 is not bad, it's the one I use, but no harm in asking.
