1) If your computers screen resolution is greater than 1024 x 768 then you can choose windowed mode from the FM 2009 Preferences > Display & Sound screen.

2) If your screen resolution is less than 1024 x 768 you will have to do the following to play in windowed mode....

3) Create a shortcut to fm.exe.



4) Right click on the shortcut and choose Properties.



5) At the end of the Target box put -small_screen - windowed

So if your game is installed via Steam then the full path in the Target box will be:

"C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2009\fm.exe" -small_screen -windowed

If you installed with Uniloc then the full path in the Target box will be:

"C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009\fm.exe" -small_screen -windowed

6) Press OK and then run the game using the shortcut.

Noooo, all it does is reduce the amount of screen used, therefore you can see your taskbar (bar along the bottom) whereas with other screen resolutions it would cover the taskbar, i prefer windowed mode.

I use windowed mode, i think that it's better. you can also change it by going into preferences on football manager and ticking or unticking the box for windowed mode
