Have you tried "glutReshapeWindow" and "glutPositionWindow"?

is there a function to go back to window-mode after glutFullScreen() is called?

I would like to create a glut-application which should be able to toggle between full-screen and window-mode while running (e.g. user controlled)

Is is possible with free-glut/glut?

best regards,
