Voted. I play in windowed atm and I have to go into the video settings every time I start the game and click windowed even though its set to windowed. I also have to change the UI size back to normal as it sets itself to very large.

So windowed need to be fixed every time we start and UI size. Maybe UI size fixes itself if it does start windowed.
