You have to change it in the FFXIV config, which is not in the game. From windows > start menu > programs > Square Enix > FFXIV > FFXIV config.

Your path may be different depending on where you installed the game, but I hope you get the general idea.

also you can comfig the setting so the game can run smoother and if you have a controller you can config it here also. I just did a copy /paste to my windows so i can access it easily.

Is there a way to minimize full screen yet? I have it on 1080 windowed right now so I can browse other things at the same time.

unfortunately their is no was to minimize it. I also play full screen and at times it sucks if i want to look something up like a synth recipe.

I too play in full screen I often wonder why the devs never added the simple function of ALT-TAB like every other pc game has had in the past 10 years.

To my knowledge, you still can't alt tab out of FFXI either. But yeah, I hope they add the ability to alt tab, I also play in windowed mode. :(

There was a small script for autohotkey somewhere in the posts right after release.
With that you can play windowed and activating the script just disables the window frame.
The result is that the games window fills the whole screen and looks like fullscreen but you can Alt-Tab or use a second monitor for something else without restriction and game crashes.
Also this doesn't mess with the game in any way, just with windows, and works with every windowed program, so, it's not 3rd party either and should be no problem.
You could also disable the window frames manually in windows, using the script is just faster and easier.

EDIT: The game should run at the monitors native resolution (1920x1080 for example) for the game to look like fulllscreen.

If your comp can handle it just put it in windows and maximize it to your monitors resolution, you can alt tab then...
