Is there any help on what all the options set? Grab input? Tooltip Accessibility? Those are not obvious.

The tooltip text shown when you hover the mouse over the item gives some brief description, and the command line help (widelands --help-all) also gives a brief explanation. Emphasis on brief.

 --inputgrab=[true|false*]
                       Whether to grab the mouse input.
 --tooltip_accessibility_mode=[true|false*]
                       Whether to use sticky tooltips.

Mousegrab has been discussed for removal (see https://github.com/widelands/widelands/issues/4733).

When Tooltips Accessibility is enabled, tooltips stay visible and fixed in place, and can then be made to disappear by clicking anywhere or pressing F2 (this is intended for users with eye-tracker devices, see https://github.com/widelands/widelands/issues/3706).

Thanks, I guess I should keep both off. Mouse I still have no clue what it is but if it is marked for death then it is probably best off. The other I don't need.

Mouse grab means that Widelands will not let other applications use the mouse, and the mouse pointer can't be moved out of the Widelands window.

Oh I see! Thanks. I always play fullscreen anyways. Hmmm although... I do have 2 screens the laptop and the monitor and if I turned this one maybe the mouse would no longer go off the bottom edge where the other screen is... worth a try.
