    Is there a way to start AC in a window instead of a full screen?

    I am working on a document that requires me to switch between the forum and the game and I'd like to have the two side by side.

    Did not check it myself but try this:

    Full Screen Rendering

    When checked Assetto Corsa will run in full screen rendering mode. Unchecked it will run in a window.

    NOT using full screen mode can help graphics card compatibility issues, and is generally more windows friendly but you will typically see a performance drop and features such as Crossfire or SLI will not function.

    Leave this checked for best performance

    You have to put manually in video.cfg file the resolution that you want and set FULLSCREEN=0. The same for launcher, you have to put manually in launcher.cfg the resolution that you want for it.
    Quite annoying to have a launcher running at full screen in game background, lots of issues related. I have set mine launcher to run at 1280x720.
