      "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), and 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.
