Is there a way for application windows to open up maximized?

For example, Notepad. When I double-click on its icon, is there a way to have it open up maximized (taking up the entire screen).

Hi s35, try this:

Create a shortcut to the app you want to open maximised (if not already created one)
Right Click>Properties on the shortcut
Select "Maximised" from the drop down list under Run
Ta da!
