Is there any way to force Windows to open ANY new window maximized? I have been maximizing file explorer windows every time I open a new one and every single time it does NOT remember that I want my windows to open maximized. Same with other Microsoft stuff.

I'd be glad even if there was some registry setting to change

Not that I'm aware of

This method works only for applications for which you can create a shortcut.

  • Find the program in the Start
  • Right-click on it > More > Open File location
  • Once you find it, right-click on it, and select Send To > Desktop (Create Shortcut)
  • Now right-click on it, select properties.
  • Under the Shortcut tab, click on the dropdown next to the Run section in the Properties window.
  • Select Maximised and then apply the changes.
You can check here for other options
