Play Starcraft 2 in Windowed Mode

starcraft 2 windowed mode

If you have multiple screens or a larger screen resolution it can be nice to play Starcraft 2 in windowed mode. In case you didn’t know, windowed mode basically means the game is contained within a standard application window rather than running in full screen.

Starcraft 2 Windowed Mode Shortcuts

Both the Windows and Mac OS X versions of Starcraft 2 can be played in window mode:

  • Mac OS X: Command+M
  • Windows: ALT+Enter, or switch to Windowed mode by adjusting the Display options from the Menu screen

There is probably a keyboard shortcut for Windows too, but I spend most of my time playing in Mac OS X.

    The problem is : When you want to scroll on the map, the mouse is not “blocked” in the starcrat viewport, so it’s really hard to play. Is there à way to block the mouse into ?

    For every Windows application it’s Alt+Enter (option+enter in case of Windows running in Bootcamp)
