Honkai Star Rail: How To Remove Black Bar At Bottom of the Screen

Honkai Star Rail is now available for everyone to play. Although the game is not yet available for console owners, there are plenty of reasons why players are jumping in as soon as they can. Honkai Star Rail is created by HoYoverse, the developers who made Genshin Impact. Because of the unknown wait time for a console release, many are jumping on the PC or mobile device port of the game.

When you are playing on a PC, you can actually use controller support for those who are more used to playing on consoles. Because of that, there is a bottom black bar on the screen that will tell you how to control the game. But it seems like that bottom black bar does not go away. So here is our guide on how to remove the bottom black bar in Honkai Star Rail.

How To Remove The Bottom Black Bar In Honkai Star Rail

In Honkai Star Rail, the game gives you a bottom black bar to give you tooltips that will help you understand how to control the game better. This bottom black bar can be seen when you are exploring or if you are in a battle. But after a while, you understand how the game works and you will want the black bar to go away. So, how do you remove the bottom black bar?

Unfortunately, you cannot remove the bottom black bar in Honkai Star Rail. No matter how far you progress in Honkai Star Rail, the bottom black bar of tooltips will remain in the game.

Honkai Star Rail Bottom Black Bar Work Around

Although you cannot actually remove the bottom black bar of tooltips in Honkai Star Rail, there is a possible workaround that you can use to get rid of it. In Honkai Star Rail, you have the ability to mess around with the aspect ratio of the game. Go to the settings and under graphics, head to the Safe Area Ratio section. Mess around with that setting until the bottom black bar is removed.

There is a problem with removing the bottom black bar in this way as you might be missing the bottom part of the game if you do this. This is especially true if you adjust the game's resolution as well. When using this as a solution for the bottom black bar, be careful about how much you remove because you might have trouble getting it back on the screen. Hopefully, HoYoverse will soon come out with a toggle to remove the bottom black bar in Honkai Star Rail.
