shower doesn't get all the water

I have a three handle faucet in my shower. One is for hot, one is for cold and the middle handle is to turn the shower on. When I turn the shower on, water continues to run out of the spout to the tub, rather than go to the shower. Any ideas on how to correct this?

First you have to identify the faucet then either replace or rebuild the diverter stem.

Do what John suggests, or change your tub spout to a spout with a handle diverter that works. Then don't forget to caulk around where the spout meets the wall.
