Q

Can I open applications in a full window in Windows 2000 or XP?

I would like to open every application in a full (maximized) window in either Windows 2000 or Windows XP. Do you know if this can be set?
There's no one switch you can set to do this. You can, however, write a batch file using the START command with the /MAX switch to start applications maximized. For instance, to start the application REGEDIT.EXE maximized: START /MAX REGEDIT.EXE (Note that any application not in your %Path% will have to be specified with the full drive and pathname, usually enclosed in quotes.)
