Is it weird liking windowed mode on some games and full screen on others?

Games that I will play for a little I use windowed mode(ex: Roblox?), and on games where I have to be a bit committed to playing(ex: CS:GO) I use fullscreen. Which do you prefer?

What you like is subjective. You can prefer what ever you like and don't have to justify it to anyone. I personally tend to like full screen mode.

Pretty much as worstcarster mentioned all personal preference, do what you like.

I prefer full screen / Exclusive full screen. In my instance however, I have an AV receiver also connected up via HDMI so is treated like a second monitor by the system. This means if I move my mouse over to the right of my screen, it can go off screen and behave as if their is a second monitor, Full screen avoids this pitfall for me also.

I use both depending on the game. Since I do not have a second monitor, if I'm playing a game where I have to look up stuff for (if I forget stuff or if I am new to it), I will use windowed, but on games that I understand and need focus for, I will use fullscreen. I'm not very sure why I do this.

I sometimes use windowed mode when I am doing other things while gaming. I have a multi monitor setup, and some games, in fullscreen mode, lock the mouse to my main monitor.
