    Can Warcraft 3 be opened in smaller window?

    My main computer is a laptop who's screen is damaged, making parts of the screen dark and hidden. I use a monitor plugged into the laptop most of the time. However, I haven't been able to designate the external monitor as the primary, and thus any full-window programs I open, open up on the broken laptop monitor. Playing Warcraft or indeed any game on the laptop monitor is effectively impossible because of the damage. Is there a way I can open Warcraft 3 on a less-than full sized, movable window, that I can then move onto the external monitor?

    Right click the Wc3 shortcut, and in the targetted path, add "-windowed" without the quotes. This should be done after the quotes in the originial path.

    Oh, I'm using -w and not -window or -windowed, which is actually the same, too.
