Fullscreen has stopped working for me. It flashes on and then reverts to a DOSBOX Status Screen. I have tried updating and rebooting, but nothing helps. The regular screen shows up in such miniature on my PC that I can't really use it. I am on a Windows 10 PC.

I got it fixed by uninstalling a recent program I had installed - Discord (a discussion platform). Everything works fine since I did that. There probably should be a list of programs which can cause problems with DOSBOX.

There may be an option in the discord settings to disable the overlay. Sounds like it takes focus away from DOSBox.
You can also try changing the DOSBox Output= in dosbox.conf to a different value
