Windows 7: Change settings so that all programs/shortcuts/windows open maximized

Change settings so that all programs/shortcuts/windows open maximized

Hi SevenForums,

I know about the option to change the "Properties" of a program/shortcut, and select "Run->Maximized." However, to change all my programs it would be time-consuming to change it for each individual one. I was wondering if there was a settings/registry that changed all my programs/shortcuts/windows to run Maximized every time, without individually changing each one?

Thanks.

Some Alternatives:

Windows key + Up arrow to maximize
Windows key + Down arrow to restore
Windows key + Left arrow to maximize to left side of screen
Windows key + Right arrow to maximize to right side of screen
