    Is there any way to force a program to run in a window rather than full-screen? I have just begun playing SimCity 4 again, but saw that there is no option to run windowed in the settings menu. I always like to check my iChat messages while I play games, so this is somewhat annoying.

    Unfortunately not all games are developed with that in mind. One workaround might be to set the resolution lower than your max resolution, and in options set the game to run "windowed". Not all games have these options though, sadly.
