    Question How do I force a game in WINE to run inside a Window?

    Hi.
    I have installed Half Life in WINE via PlayOnLinux. How do I force it to not run in full screen? For example I'd like to run it in a window of 800x600 or something similar like 832x632.

    Note this is my setup for WINE [picture attached].

    wine explorer /desktop=800x600 program.exe
    Be aware that the program may affect the window size on its own, but it will run in a window.
    Turn off emulate virtual desktop as this may interfere with my example.
