    I need some help.

    Can someone tell me if there is a way (or program) to run a full-screen program in a window.

    And yes, i've tried alt+enter.

    I just asked if there was a program..

    If I knew the answer to your question, I wouldn't have asked my original question.

    Well I have not found much on google :\

    You might want to try adding -w or -windowed to the shortcut see if that works.

    f4 is also a key to window a lot of programs. There was no real need to lambast Seyiji either, the question was valid, games typically have an option to run windowed as well although it can take some digging to do.

    As for the matter at hand there is a linux app I know of: http://www.gnu.org/software/screen/ windows on the other hand I do not know about.

    Any such use would likely result in a nice performance hit as well so for the record a second monitor would be a far better investment.

    Edit, a quick search drags up this app DxWnd although it appears to want direct7 and below apps,

    I come back after posting my last message (after more time in google) to post the same program FAST6191 found only to find out that in my leave I've been lambasted!

    Well I never *puts on his monocle and storms out*

    The word "Lambasted" makes me hungry. *Goes off to make sandwich*
