Is there any way to force programs to open windowed?

    I'm thinking there might be a terminal command, kind of like "-window" in windows command prompt. This actually is necessary for me, because I have a strong feeling a number of the prefixes that aren't working for me aren't working because of compatibility issues with Fullscreen not working with the Virtual Desktops and all that. I could be wrong though.

    I'm confused... games are the only application I can think of where the default mode is not windowed. All other apps I can think of open in a window and not full screen by default. Can you give some examples?

    Games, emulators, and some Wine prefixes all open in full screen by default.

    Generally the windowed setting will be in the preferences for each app.
