Classic re-releases have been a popular way to reintroduce players to older titles for many years now. One of the things that caught on early with this practice was the inclusion of screen borders surrounding the gameplay. Thanks to our wider screens, there’s so much dead space that can be utilized by aesthetic improvements. But sometimes you don’t want these things in the way of your gameplay session. Some players prefer the inky blackness surrounding the screen as opposed to themed images that could potentially burn onto their screen. So here’s how to turn borders in Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King.
How to Turn Off Borders
Your first instinct when you try to turn off borders in Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King will likely be to press Start, Menu, Options or Plus, but this will almost certainly just pause the game instead of opening any settings or menu options. The way to do it differs depending on your platform, but it should be whatever the alternate button is, such as Minus on Switch, View on Xbox One, or the Touchpad on PS4. If you can’t figure it out, just mess with other buttons, but basically you need to get into the in-game menu. The Options menu from back at the game select screen won’t help with borders.
Once there just go to Screen Options and move down to Border to toggle it on or off. Hit the select button (A, X, Enter) to toggle it, rather than pressing left or right as you may also expect. There aren’t other options here, you just turn borders on or off from this menu, so choose whichever you wish. Also in here are various filters you can apply if you want, so flip through them to see how you prefer to play your classic game.
Now you know how to turn borders in Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King.
