Make GTA4 run in windowed mode?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I never run games full screen because I like fast alt-tabbing, but when I run GTA4 with the -windowed command, it makes the game stay always on top of other windows.

Is there a way to make GTA4 run in windowed mode, without its window always-on-top of other windows?

Thanks

Is it any point to do that at all? I think it switches damn fast when I alt-tab!

Vista allows you to choose between full screen or windowed. Pick a resolution in-game. Close the game. Right click on the game (or go in the game section in Vista) and from all options, you'll see full screen/windowed.
