I am trying to see if there is a way of running full screen apps in a window under gnome, rather than having them appear as full screen (examples under F7 include Advanced Strategic Command). I had the app appear in a window "by accident" the other day but have no idea how the process came about - it may have been due to an automatic context switch to another application. Is there anything I can do?

Also/alternatively is there a way to switch from them back to gnome without closing the application?

Thanks,

Michael.

A lot of apps will switch from full to window and vice-versa with Alt + [Enter]...that usually what I try first, them look in configuration menus for the app itself.

Nope, not alt + [Enter]. It just strikes me that this may be a more generic thing... Further suggestions?
