Shift-F1 not working outside the editor

While running the game inside the editor, I can use SHIFT-F1 on Windows to release the mouse focus capture. However this does not seem to work when I start the game using the batch file or from a packaged bundle.

Shift+F1 is an editor feature. If you want to use the mouse in your game, you will need to use the Show Mouse Cursor function in something like your Player BP. Otherwise, if it’s not the mouse you want to use in-game and you just want to get out of the game window, you can use alt+tab.

Yes, editor only but you can use ALT+TAB which forces the game to lose focus and you can click elsewhere. Give that a try.

If you’re running from the command-line, add -WINDOWED to the command and it will help.
