So how do I play a game that is full screen in a window mode? The reason I want to to this is because I have 2 computers with 2 screens and i have this program called synergy that lets me use 1 keyboard and mouse to jump back and forth between the 2 computers, its like having both monitors plugged into one video card except its 2 different computers, its pretty cool. Anyways with this program, if I am playing a game that is full scree and I want to to to the other computer, it minimizes the game and them lets me move the mouse over to the other computer. How do I play full screen games in a window mode so that it does not minimize the game in order to move to the other computer. I am running Windows XP Pro. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks

That sucks, I was going to go the KVM route, but this is so much cooler, just swing the mouse over and your in the other computer. Comes with a clipboard so u can copy and paste between computers as well. KVM switch cannot do that. But thanks anyways.

Well, for this game I play called MapleStory, I heard of a way, but you must basically crack the program to do it.

AKA a hack. Apparently, you can get banned for it.

Maybe it would work for whatever other game you wanna play? But chances are, the way in which is runs the game in windowed mode is the same way. Via a 3rd party program.
