I installed Free Cell (not the one that came with Windows 98SE), and the game interface covers the entire screen! Therefore, I cannot bring any other application forward for focus while playing the game. There seems to be no way to make the game window smaller.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! :thumbsup:

ALT/TAB?
Holding down the Alt and then pressing the Tab will change windows between the game and other application instances you may have running. Having other applications open, though, may degrade your gaming experience.

Thanks, John.

It doesn't work, and I finally heard from the guy who sent it to me. He said it can't be displayed as a window, and that I would just have to play it full screen. :thumbsup:

My OS is windows 98SE, and the version of the game that was bundled with it will not work at all. :flowers:

Thanks, Guardian!

Using alt/enter only makes the screen white and then the game is displayed again immediately. Thanks for the suggestion, though.

Do you, or does anyone here, know where I might download a fresh copy of the Windows version of Free Cell?

Thanks,
