Default Can you force a game to run in a window?

Some games have the option of running it in a window, others don't but you can use ALT + ENTER to put them into a window. Is there any way to force a game to run in a window, even when Alt + ENTER doesn't work? I thought maybe there would be a command I could put on the end of the shortcut?

You can select "window" in the shortcut properties. Don't think it works for every game though.
