I didn't see a thread on this so I will just post it here. In case people are wondering how to play Dayz in windowed mode, its very simple you just have to push.

ALT + ENTER

Advantage is on possibility to use other apps while playing. This ALT+ENTER works on almost any full screen game. Good thing to keep in mind, this question is heard far too often in gaming forums. +1 to Stry423 :)

well since I use 2 monitors I have the online map on one and the game on the other, if it was in full screen it would just minimize my game and i would have to alt tab. This way I can just click the different windows and continue playing.

Alt enter doesn't work for me. In steam or six updater you can add -windowed -height 1900 -width 1080 or whatever.

I do this so I can alt tab better.
