    Introduction
    Playing Warcraft in a window is very useful when you are doing other stuff while playing Warcraft or while writing strategies or something. Because it's very easy to minimize and you don't even have to minimize. It's also nice if you are chatting on MSN, AIM, YIM, IRC or any other IM.

    Doing it (Windows)
    The way to do it is to make a shortcut to Warcraft III (you probably already have that)
    Then rightclick on it and click on "Properties"
    Then add -window after the "Target".
    Mine looks like this:
    Target: "D:\Games\Warcraft III\Frozen Throne.exe" -window

    Doing it (Mac)
    On a mac you can swap from windowed mode to fullscreen mode and reversed whenever you want. Simply press  + M.

    Yes it does. Create a shortcut of Warcraft 3 and just type - window after the gamepath in target.
