Maximize Your View
If you've ever wondered if there's a way to make sure a program's window always opens at the same size, check this out. Unfortunately, you can't be sure that a window will always open at any specified size; but you can make a window open at full size every time. Let's see how this works by setting Solitaire to always open maximized.
Bring up the properties sheet for Solitaire's program icon, by selecting Start, All Programs, Games, Solitaire. When the Properties dialog box opens, click the Shortcut tab. Next, click the arrow at the right side of the Run list box to expand the list. Select Maximized from the list and click OK to close the dialog box and save your changes.
When you run Solitaire by clicking the shortcut, the program will always run in a maximized window.
