program in a window

y2keabley2keable Posts: 23Member
I've already established how to make a program execute in full screen when it would normaly open in a window (people who use windows XP will know what i mean...annoying isn't it) but i need to know how to make the program execute in a window when it would normaly open in full screen.

this needs to be in the form of code that i can put into my program...cos i just know i'm gonna get tones of people saying "right click on the window and select properties..."

cheers

    What are you using to make the program? Visual Basic, Visual Studios C++?

    "Right click on the window and select properties..." Just kiddin.
    You could edit the file path properties. I do this for my diablo2.
    for example: The normal path of d2 is:
    c:/diablo2/diablo2.exe
    just set a "-w" command at the end of the string so that it looks like this
    "c:/diablo2/diablo2.exe" -w
    it makes diablo2.exe open in a windowed mode.
    that's the easy, lazy way. its something like that, not good at remembering stuff, lol
    anyways, goodluck.
