    Hi,

    I was wondering, how is it possible to get out of games in OSX?

    I'm playing Europa Universalis and Crusader Kings from Steam, and I just can't get out of the games.

    What am I missing??

    Thanks!

    OS X allows it, but it mostly depends of the game, if it has implemented-allowed this. If cmd-tab won't work, there may be a key combination within the game allowing it to turn it to windowed mode so you can access the desktop.

    command tab usually works.


    Is windowed mode an option? Most games I play also offer a windowed option and I tend to play in that mode. Just hop back and forth making whatever window active.
