Is there a way to play Alpha Centauri in windowed mode in Windows 10?

    I hate having to close the game every time I have to answer an email or something.

    Welcome to CivFanatics and the Alpha Centauri forum!

    Are you playing the GOG version of the game? If so, GOG deliberately disabled Alt-Tab and that prevents you from switching to another app. Try this workaround: Rename the executable to something like terran_GOG.exe or terranx_GOG.exe (depending on which version you play). Doing so should allow you to Alt-Tab out of the game. Remember to change your shortcut to reflect the change. If that wasn't your problem, or the workaround doesn't help, please post again. Good luck!

    I am playing the GOG version on Windows 10 Home Edition 64bit. If there's any other information you need I can give it.
