The standard way to launch a game in windowed mode is through the steam launch options. Unfortunately, this will not work for Civilization 6. Instead, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Go to DocumentsMy GamesSid Meier’s Civilization VI
  2. Open AppOptions.txt
  3. Look for the option that says FullScreen 1
  4. Change that option to FullScreen 0
  5. Save the file and launch Civilization 6

Following that change, your game will open in windowed mode. You can also set your desired RenderWidth and RenderHeight to match your screen resolution for a fullscreen gaming experience.
