It's in the game settings. Start the game, open Options > Video > Run in a Window, then choose the size/resolution of the window. Each game's options are a little different.

Or, if the game video options don't have that option, simply go to the desktop
icon of the game or the location in the start menu, right click on the program,
select properties, then where the field for "target" is put a "-window" at the end.


Target: "C:\Program Files\Steam\Steam.exe" -applaunch 500 -window

hey guys thanks! the -window thing works. but theres a prob. im using this program garena to run my game, warcraft 3, so that i can play with others in LAN. In garena they ask for the executable path, hence when i use browse and select the shortcut where ive added -window to the target, it just bypasses it and goes straight to the location of the original file "D:\Program Files\Warcraft III\Warcraft III\war3.exe" when i tried changing the "target" of the original warcraft icon (not any shortcut icon) in the properties page, there is no such field for "target". any chance i can change this?
