If you – like me – have certain programs you prefer to always run in a maximized window (filling the entire screen) you are probably wearing out your Maximize button each time you run it. Here’s a small tip for you on how to make single applications always open maximized.
- Locate the application
- Right-click and choose Properties
- Click the Shortcut Tab
- In the Run field, you have the following Options: Normal, Minimized and maximized
Choose your preference: Maximized
- Click OK and close the dialogue window
The next time, the application will run in a maximized window.
You have to do this tweak for every application you want to open in full view. But once you have done it – your Maximize button can get a good rest.
