Windows 7: How to set maximized windows

How to set maximized windows

Got several programs that always open somewhere between maximized and minimized, so I have to click to fully open every time.
I would prefer to start them maximized always.
Others remember the last setting, but not all...
Can that be set?

If you held Ctrl down as you clicked the red X it sets the window to what size it was.

Create a shortcut to your program you want always to open maximized. Tutorial: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...r-program.html

Now right click the newly created shortcut and select Properties from context menu to open shortcut properties dialog:

Go to Shortcut tab, select Run: Maximized, click Apply to save settings, click OK to close Properties:

Now whenever you run the program from its shortcut, it will open on maximized window.
