How to open all windows maximized all the time on every applications and folders?

How to open all windows maximized all the time on every applications and folders?
I need every folder or application to open fully maximized in Windows XP.

Now it randomly opens in various sizes all over the desktop.

I know that if you maximize the window before closing it the next time you open it, it will open maximized, however, I can't open 10 000 files, folders and applications maximize them and close them so that the next time they will be maximized!

Any way to do this?

The new Beta IE has tabs so you can go from one window to the next in full screen. The tabs are located at the top. If you haven't tried the new IE it might be worth a shot.


Good luck

Tabbed Browsing, what another original ground breaking idea from microserfs.

This should solve the problem pataya


1.Open a single Internet Explorer window to the smaller size.

2.Drag the corners of the window until it completely fills the screen. Do not use the maximize (the lil two boxes button at the upper-right near the red x) button to enlarge the window.

3.Hold down the Ctrl key, keep it depressed, and using the mouse click File and then Exit on the menu bar. Do not use the "X" in the upper-right corner to close the window.

4.Internet Explorer should now open in a full window.
If it still opens to a smaller size repeat the above instructions, substituting the "Shift" key for the "Ctrl" key.

The original post mentioned all applications - not just web browser windows.

Why do people start threads asking for help and then never follow up or respond???

I'm still curious why someone would want to have 10,000 Windows open at once!??! Is this a bar bet?

Definately go with a tabbed browser. I suggest Firefox or Flock. Switch over and erase evil IE from the world!!

I'm not sure there is a Windows shortcut to maximize all open windows, so I created a little utility to do just that.
No installation. The proggie runs as a tray app (bottom right corner of the screen)

I just saw your sig line littleFella, "In order to understand recursion, one must first understand recursion.", and it made me laugh - then it made me cry as I remembered learning recursion
