You can start up your other programs, then when KoDP is running, alt-tab to bring up the other programs in front. Or use control-escape to get the start menu and task bar.

> Does alt-enter in Windows switch between full screen and windowed? I vaguely recall seeing it in a window and being disappointed that it was always 640x480, making for a small window. Or maybe I'm thinking of some other game. I'd have to boot up Windows 98 to check...
The drawback is that KoDP is always in the center of the screen. You might be able to work around that with some sort of dual screen trickery.
But no, I wasn't able to find any way of getting rid of the black border.
