Fullscreen mode: Maximized Window functionality is broken and any built Player changes to Non-Window mode when Maximizing



How to reproduce:
1. Create a new project and open its Player settings
2. Under the "Resolution" settings change the "Fullscreen Mode" to "Maximized Window" and checkmark the "Resizable Window" option
3. Build the project
4. Run it in fullscreen mode (The Player will be fullscreen in non-window form)
5. Run it again in windowed mode and maximize the window (The Player will still be in fullscreen non-window form)

Expected result: when maximizing the player is still in window mode
Actual result: maximizing the player results in it changing modes to regular fullscreen, making the title bar disappear

Reproduced in: 2019.2.0a8, 2019.2.0a6, 2019.1.0b7, 2019.1.0b5, 2018.3.9f1, 2018.3.8f1
Not reproducible with: 2019.2.0a5, 2019.1.0b4, 2018.3.7f1, 2017.4.23f1 (The 2017.4 versions had a separate D3D11 Fullscreen Mode setting which works as expected when setting it to Exclusive Mode)

  1. Resolution Note (fix version 2018.4.0f1):

    The behavior of the Maximize button was changed in order to fix another (more serious) issue:

    Clearly we made a bad call. So, we've implemented a different fix to the aforementioned bug which also maintains the correct maximize window behavior.

    A workaround to automatically revert the app out of fullscreen mode can be found here:

    This seriously needs more priority. It worked in 2017.3, then I switched to 2018.3.11f1 and maximizing the window now switches to fullscreen mode.

    Why is this a P2? This is a regression since 2018.3.7f1, How do we increase the Priority on this?

    When is this going to be fixed?
    It is very uncommon on Windows to end up in fullscreen when clicking the maximize button.
