Have tried a few ideas from Google on how to maximize a program in Google (permanently, not just one time), cannot get any to work, need some expert advice. I am using Win.8. T.I.A.

Are you meaning to have explorer.exe always keep your preferences regarding the display length and width of each program you set?  My RegSeeker calls this idea:  explorer window settings; somehow, somewhere, is the setting within W8 to save explorer window settings.  I know about Windows 7, but not about Window 8.

Thanks for the reply, a little unclear, sorry, what is Regseeker, somehow, somewhere?

First option is to see Ask Leo for this idea. (often used)

2nd option is to try  this >>
- Download latest version of Chrome
- Select the option to open window 'Maximized' as default in 'Properties'
- Open Chrome
- Select 'Auto-hide Taskbar'
- Close Chrome
- Re-open Chrome
- De-select 'Auto-hide Taskbar'

3rd option is to use Firefox or Internet Explorer.

durkinjt, I was at work when I saw your opening post.  Now I see that I totally missunderstood what you're asking about.  There was background noise, sunlight reflecting on my laptop display, so I missed some of the wording and therefore what you really meant!  Disregard my comments about "RegSeeker, somewhere, somehow."
