I want to be able to run Skyrim with THD in "Full Screen" mode

It's true that "Full-Screen" only works with the nVidia display card. If your computer has an nVidia display card, but still fails to run the game in "Full-Screen" mode, please check:
1. Whether or not your computer's motherboard has an integrated display chipset.
To check this, just take note of whether your computer's motherboard has a VGA or DVI interface. If it has, please disable the integrated display chipset using Microsoft Device Manager or BIOS.
2. Whether or not you have more than one monitor connected to your computer.
Some users tell us that after disabling the second monitor, the "Full-Screen mode" works.
A user named "Jerry" gave us the detailed steps for setting up full-screen; please view this article.
3. Whether or not you are using SLI.
Currently, SLI is not supported. Sorry for this.
4. Check 'EnableNvFBC' and 'Blank Screen' in registry file under 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Splashtop Inc.\Splashtop Remote Server '.
Within Windows command line, type 'regedit', will open registry file edit tool. Within 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Splashtop Inc.\Splashtop Remote Server', the correct value of 'EnableNvFBC' should be '1', and there should be no 'Blank Screen' item. If 'Blank Screen' exist, the correct value is '0'.
5. Whether or not your computer has installed the latest driver for your display card.
Please check nVidia's website to make sure you have installed the latest display driver on your computer.
For those who are using an ATI display card or Intel integrated display chip, we have been tipped off to another solution.
Thanks to the user named "T" for giving us a tip in his comments: "... just use 'windowed, borderless' and it is basically the same as full-screen."
Some users ask how to run Skyrim in "Windowed-mode." After running 'Skyrim', before 'play', you will see 'Options' after 'Play'. Click 'Options', then you will see the checkbox for "Windowed-mode." Enable the checkbox, and save by clicking 'OK'. After this, click 'Play' to run Skyrim in "Windowed-mode."
