First of all, forgive me if I've posted this in the wrong area.

 

My wife's computer is a Dell Optiplex GX270 which runs XP Pro SP3. When she runs AOL, it starts in a normal window, even though "maximized" is selected in the shortcut's properties menu.  She can maximize the window once she's in there but she wants it to behave like she's telling it to.  Is there anything I can do to make it open maximized?

As I said, I've tried that.

It seems that the comment in the referenced link of, "Some programs override this" applies in this case.

 

Best of luck.
