Windows 7: Batch script to change how applications open from shortcuts

Batch script to change how applications open from shortcuts

Hi. I have Googled this without success. Does anyone know of a script (or is able to write one?) which will batch convert a folder (+ subfolders) full of shortcuts so that they all open the application they link to (in the case, Microsoft Flight Simulator) in a maximized, not 'normal' window?

I have over a thousand of these shortcuts and opening each one's properties window and changing 'normal' to 'maximized' is not really an option!

Not really a 'Windows 7' question specifically of course, but maybe someone here will know anyway?

Thanks,

Martin
