1. Find the shortcut for the computer game you want to play in windowed mode instead of full screen.

2. Right click on the shortcut, select Properties.

3. In the Target field add: -window at the end.

4. Click OK.

That should work....

Also under the shortcut tab there is a run section that you can select how you want it to be viewed. Such as Max, Min, or normal. That could also help just set it min setting and it should be windowed.
