Well, The Sims is not a game you want to play in "Window" mode. It's a full-screen one that you could minimise on Windows OS. I am a Mac convert and absolutely love my mac, and I have eventually got used to not doing things the Windows way, which has worked fine so far. But with some things, like minimising the game, it's just annoying not being able to do it yet! (I bet there must be a solution). I've tried fn F12 to minimise the window, as well as combo of cmd + tab, cmd + alt + tab, etc etc etc. Nothing seems to work. In any case, it has to be aspyr or EA games the ones who make a key compatibility in order for OS X users to be able to do this!!!
Anyone else?? Any answers??
Have you tried the Esc key?
Most movies and other FullScreen apps use Esc to return control to the desktop.
You can also use the Cmd-h to hide it.
If you hold down the Cmd key before double-clicking the game you can play it in a windowed mode and make the window as large as you wish.
There are instructions for this in the Sims readme file.
