When i open the game it starts in windowed mode and i can't put it in full screen... Even if in the options i put full screen at resolution(1920x1080) it still keep the windowed mode but,when i put a lower resolution i can play the game in full screen but with a lot of stuttering and the screen kinda shake... also if i press alt + enter, the full screen still doesn't work...

I have an gtx 1080 zotac amp extreme, i5 4690k, 16gb Ram.

Although this requires some manual editing, you can try the following.


1. Make sure Origin and NFS Payback are closed.
2. Go to C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\Need For Speed(TM) Payback\settings

3. Find the file PROFILEOPTIONS_profile and open it with a text editor, Notepad should work
4. Find "GstRender.FullscreenEnabled" and set it to 1. Here is how it is set up on my end: GstRender.FullscreenEnabled 1
5. Save the file. Do not "save as".

Now the game should force open in full screen. Not sure why ALT + ENTER does not work for you, it works here just fine.
In case you are interested, here are my full settings (all changed in-game).
