      "The biggest benefit you'll experience is that fullscreen mode now defaults to borderless windowed, so that snapping in and out of fullscreen mode is very quick!" https://minecraft.net/en-us/article/minecraft-snapshot-17w43a

      The new borderless fullscreen feature is not actually borderless, it's just regular fullscreen. This results in delayed window switching (in fact, it's even slower than it was in 1.12.2), the inability to screenshot with PrtSc and Alt+PrtSc (see attached screenshots), and a 100% chance of a crash when tabbing back into the game (a "not responding" crash; a crash report is not dumped by the game) (fixed).

      In fullscreen mode, there is no way to take a screenshot without using the game's own screenshot functionality (F2). PrtSc and Alt+PrtSc don't work properly, as seen in the screenshots attached to this ticket. Note that these screenshots were taken at the main menu - they do not at all show what was actually being displayed at the time of the screenshots.
