    Running a game in windowed mode

    Google isn't being much help with this question. So I'm coming here.
    Whats the command you put after the target or whatever to window a fullscreen game?

    if you create a shortcut to the target exe, you should then be able to go into the properties of the shortcut (right click it) , and select either windowed or full screen

    if it's a game though, that probably won't work. There's usually an option within the game itself to run either windowed or full screen.

    Yeah, windowed vs maximised (for apps, the one you can rig a shortcut to control) and windowed vs fullscreen are two different things. To get a game playing in a window, it's up to the game to support that.
