I would like to window my football manager game I have done a search but for me my Target option in shortcut is greyed out and I believe that I should type something into it which it will not allow me to do.

My football manager goes full screen with no window, I want it in a window. How do you do this?

Make sure your screen resolution is at about 1280x1024 and then untick the full screen option in the preferences

Try this

Delete that shortcut.

Manually create your own

Almost always play windowed, but from experience it makes the game a lot slower.

Just get rid of "-windowed -small_screen" in the target box :thup:

I reciently bought a large screen, "19 I believe, but I had to take it back, FM looked terrible on it and when I used windowed mode it distorted the in-game format. For example there would be a scroll bar to see all a player's technical and mental attribues. It was ugly and annoying.

Is that true, it makes it slower?

That's an error with the game, not the monitor. I'm surprised they took it back off you to be honest.

Yes because it was probably an LCD and you need to configure FM to run at the proper native resolution of your monitor. I.e using the -fullscreen_width and -fullscreen_height shortcut parameters.
