Make a shortcut on your desktop and add in the target line: "+windowed 1" without the quotes.
Then it should look like this:
"C:\Program Files\Sierra\FEAR\FEAR.exe" +windowed 1

This method should also work for the latest Condemned game which is using the same engine as F.E.A.R.

I looked for this solution for years by now and I found it today. I think people might want this... I am a social person and I want to chat with my MSN contacts while I am gaming.

If you have questions regarding running other games in windowed please ask for help here and I will give you a solution. Most of the time 3DAnalyze might solve your problems. (It does not solve windowed mode for F.E.A.R.)

Have fun!

Just so you know that solution works for just about every game through shortcuts, some other verations that work -w -window -windowed -fullscreen 0

I tried all those before, neither of them worked. If you think I am retarded, you are wrong, see it yourself, none of those commands work for FEAR. This was the only one that worked.

I am still trying to get FSW Ten Hammers to work in windowed..

simply using command line parameters and switches should not be 'tutorials'

I got operation flashpoint to work in windowed mode with 3danalyze... But after I launch it with 3danalyze in windowed the resolutions didn't work so i had to edit the .cfg flies in the operation flashpoint directory. And Why the hell can't I play Operation flashpoint all just maxed out on a 3Gb RAM 8600GT 512Mb VRAM????
As soon as I put terrain detail on very high the menus even start getting laggy...

Combat Arms doesn't work at all with any command line parameter in windowed mode... Strange... I tried every tool on the net... Every parameter...
