modes. In full screen mode, the Heroes III game fills your entire video display at 800 x 600 pixel resolution. In this mode, you may press Alt-TAB to minimize the game screen and display the Windows
Desktop. To return to the game from the Desktop, select it from your Taskbar.
In windowed display mode, the game appears in a standard Desktop window. Since the game displays at

Quit: Closes the program
Full Screen (F4): Switches the display to full screen mode
On Line Manual: Starts the help system
