  1. Opening desktop shortcut displays minimized window, want maximized


    Upon powering up computer, when I launch certain shortcuts off the desktop, they open with a very minimized window. This seems to have occurred after a recent Windows update. I search the properties of the icon and there isn't any control offered. How do I control this attribute?

    :)

  2. win 10 ie11 desktop shortcuts open minimized

    Another curious twist:

    open a desktop shortcut, maximize it, minimize it to the task bar, open another shortcut , and the second opens full screen. As long as there is one full screen open all others open full screen as well.

    Opening desktop shortcut displays minimized window, want maximized

    Open a PDF viewer in windowed mode (NOT maximized, NOT minimized)

    I am trying to force a PDF viewer (Bluebeam Revu) to always open in windowed mode, not full screen (maximized) and not minimized. Even for normal programs I see no way to do this, but for a PDF viewer where I open it 100% of the time by clicking on all
    these different individual PDFs, I really am not sure how I would go about forcing it to always open in windowed mode.

    To further complicate the issue, if I make a shortcut to a pdf (for testing purpose only, only "Shortcuts" have the following options) and set it to always open minimized or maximized, nothing changes; it will always only open the same way that it had been
    closed (windowed or maximized) and none of the options changes that.

    If you have any suggestions that would be great, because right now half the time I need to window mode the PDF, close it and re open it so that it starts windowed (I do use full screen most of the time, but there is a bug that can't allow it to _start_ full
    screen, hence the problem).

    Thanks!
