How to hide version number in Baldur’s Gate 3
You can press F10 on your keyboard to hide the version number being displayed on your screen. However, doing this will also hide all of your UI elements.
Unfortunately, there’s no way to get rid of just the version number at the moment. So you’re stuck either looking at the version number or going about your adventure without a user interface. Still, if you want to take a screenshot, then that’s definitely the way to go about it.
Your UI in Baldur’s Gate 3 displays a lot of helpful stuff like your health, mini-map, and turn order so turning it off completely isn’t advisable. At least, now if you want to continue playing and avoid dying.
What is the version number?
The version number is just there to tell you which build of the game is currently being played. The number that is displayed changes as the game goes through patches and updates.
Some people like to keep track of which version of the game is currently active, but not so much so that it needs to be constantly shoved in their faces. And though many find the version number on their screen a bit jarring, it doesn’t stop Baldur’s Gate 3 from being an amazing game. It is definitely one of our favorites from this year, and we are sure you agree.
