Forcing new windows to be maximized ?

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

Is there a way to force programs (Outlook Express, IE6, to name two) to
always start up with maximized windows?

Thanks, Jennifer

    Go to Start > Programs > Outlook Express and right-click
    on the link, then select Properties > Shortcut. Select "Maximized"
    from the Run pull-down menu and click Apply.

    Repeat this procedure with other program links.

    If you use your mouse to drag the top, bottom and sides of just about any
    window you open and then close that window with File and Close, it will
    retain that stretched size. Works for OE, IE and Windows Explorer. You can
    also use it to stretch links in IE to full size.
