  • Any way to force windowed mode in all apps?

    Well, the title says it all....


    Any way I can force a full-screen application to run in windowed mode? I've tried making shortcuts with the -w parameter at the end, but that doesnt for all apps. Any program or workaround i can use to run any app in windowed mode?

    All apps as in???? Is there something specific you run that isn't able to run windowed?

    Details young grasshoper... :)
    I do what I can.

      Well, I'm at work :P And the only way I can play anything is in windowed mode....to give you a few examples, Starcraft and Gunbound (a game someone posted in the strat forum) will not run windowed, despite what I try. Also, most games off gamehippo.com are unable to.


      I'm running windows xp. any ideas?

            Remember when old games used to have a "Boss" key? How come games don't have that anymore? :D

            - It's who you game with.

              Can't you just hit the windows key or alt + tab to minimize?

                yes. or i know for a fact alt + esc works on starcraft and gunbound to be specific. i have also known games which do not minimize at all. so i guess it depends.

                  I CAN minimize...but I was just wondering if anyone knew a program or parameter that forced apps to run windowed.
