    Force IE,CHROME,FF website shortcuts placed on desktop to open FULL SC


    With other software shortcuts on my desktop when you right click them and then click properties there is a shortcut tab that allows you to select RUN: MAXIMIZED. Why is this shortcut tab not on a shortcut created by right clicking the desktop, new, shortcut?

    Is there any reg hack to make a shortcut to a webpage open maximized? All shortcuts open "normal" and have to be maximized manually to clicking the box between the - and X..........WHY?

    :)

    How to make Microsoft Edge in Windows 10 full screen ? ( if that's even possible )

    Hello Everyone,

    Recently I came to a need to make the Microsoft Edge ( one website ) full screen to view the content, but I could not figure out how to make the page full screen like we can in IE, FF, or Google Chrome. Is it even supported by Edge or am I just wasting my
    time here ?

    PS: I know I can use FF, or Chrome, but I am curious if there is a way to make Edge fullscreen as well.

    Thank you for everyone in advance.

  3. I am so sick of having to maximise each web page I open in windows 10. It is totally ridiculous that a fix that works does not appear to be available.

    Hi,

    Your homepage link on your desktop is different to the website links on your desktop. If you right click on a desktop item and select the Properties menu from the context menu you will see that your homepage desktop item is a .lnk file which does have a
    setting to open the 'target' in full screen mode.

    If you do the same for any other desktop item for a website, you will not see a setting to open the 'target' in full screen mode....

    To open your desktop website links in an IE window that is as big as the screen, you need to close the last IE window maximized.... IE will remember the dimensions of the LAST window that was closed and use those dimensions when it opens a new IE window.

    so .... close all IE windows... click on a link on your desktop (not your homepage link) and maximize it by either double-clicking the title bar or choosing the [] button on the top right hand side. Now close the IE Window to save its size settings.

    Then click on the same desktop link again... This time it should open up with the same dimensions as were saved when the last IE window was closed...

    Your homepage link on your desktop is a different type of 'link' (.lnk file == desktop link) and it will always open IE in full screen size, regardless of any previous settings).

    Your other links on your desktop are a different type of 'link' (.url file==internet shortcut) and will use the size settings saved when the last IE window was closed.

    Regards.

    That setting is available. Right Click Shortcut > Properties > Shortcut Tab > Run v, choose maximised.
    Applies to IE, and Chrome.

    I have had problems in the past with uninstallers deleting more than they should from Registry entries and consequently affecting right click menus.

    As you can see it is not there for internet website shortcuts............... I even went to the IE shortcut and it was there. I said to open maximized and it does nothing. There must be something in the registry that can be changed.....why does it open full screen all of the time when in IE. Firefox does it without any problem and did not have to be changed in any way.
