Weird question for you all....
Hi there. I am trying to help one of my grandmas neighbours with there computer and he has requested something kinda weird. He has a bunch of website shortcuts on his desktop, when he opens one it launches IE in a minimized window. He would like all his shortcuts to launch IE in full screen. I cant for the life of me figure out how to do this. I know it must be some little windows setting somewhere but i just cant locate it. Can anyone help???

Thanks in advance. :thumb:

Perhaps something like this?

Right-click the shortcut, find the window as above, and select "maximized"? See if that works...

Yah that would be it. Thanks for finding that. Its weird though once i move an internet favorite to the desktop its no longer a "shortcut" it just kinda copies the URL file to the desktop. I think it might have something to do with the backup software he is running. Either way hes happy with what i found out. Thanks for the answer CMetaphor
