Is it possible? I run WoW in windowed mode so I can still IM and check thottbot.com or wowhead.com , and I would like to run Sims 2 in windowed mode as well, but as far as I can tell there is not an option for windowed mode. Is there a way I can force it to run in windowed mode?

Surprised this wasn't answered.

Yes, there is a way. While you double click the Sims 2 icon, hold down the Apple (Command ⌘) key. It should bring up a dialog asking if you want windowed or full screen mode.

This is great. I love to multi-task while I'm living a second virtual life where I also multi-task.

This isn't working for me. I'd like to know if there was another solution if at all possible.

Thanks. Lexy.

What you can do is once you open your game launcher, their is a button next to "Launch Game" with a settings logo on it click it, then click fullscreen.
