    How do I get the game to run in windowed mode?

    Alright well... the first time i ran it, it ran in windowed mode. However, after I closed it out and tried runing it again, It will only run in "full screen exclusive" mode, and I can find no option to run it in windowed mode =\

    In your Zelda Classic folder, there should be either zelda.exe or zelda-w.exe, and then an MS-DOS shortcut by the same name. Right click the shortcut, and click properties. Then go to the "Program" tab, and in the box where it says "Cmd line:" next to it, add either "-window" or "-windowed", I forget which, to the end of the line, without the quotes of course, and then click OK. Double click the shortcut and it should run ZC windowed.

    Also, if you're running the Windows version of ZC 2.10 just click on Start------>Program Files/All Programs*------>Zelda Classic 2.10. In that folder there are many shortcuts for both ZC and Zquest, ranging from full screen mode to windowed modes of varying sizes.

    *This depends on which version of Windows you are using. 95/98 and if I remember right, 2k and ME use Program Files. WinXP uses All Programs.

    Use ZLaunch and change the resolution.
    This will change the game window size.
