Go to your Portal 2 game icon, right click, select launch option.

Then input one of these "-window", "-sw", "-startwindowed", or "-windowed"

In your Steam client, right click on Portal 2 in the game list, select Properties, and click on Set launch options.

The options you should put in there are -windowed for the windowed mode, and -noborder to make the window borders disappear.

In steam right click on portal 2 and select Properties. Then in the window that appears click on Set Launch Parameters. In the field that appears enter exactly "-windowed". This should work for ANY source game made by Valve. Good luck :)

After you start the game you can select windowed mode under the Video Options Menu. Easiest way to do it.
