Shortcut To Open A Window Maximized In XP.
You can tweak the properties for any shortcut to specify the way you want it to
open Normal, Minimized, or Maximized. Right-click the shortcut and choose
Properties from the pop-up menu. The drop-down list labeled Run is the one that
controls this setting. Change it to Maximized and click OK.
This setting is just a request from the operating system, so it doesn't have any
real teeth. Windows will inform the program that you want it to launch
Maximized, but the program may or may not comply. If it doesn't, don't worry.
There is, as you requested, a simple key combination you can use to maximize the
active window. Press Alt-Spacebar (which opens the system menu at the window's
top left) followed by X, the shortcut key for Maximize.
