Maximise the program's window then before closing it hold down the CTRL key then click the X in the upper right corner to close the program. It should now open maximised.

Might try Little Fellas app here

Hmm this looks more like it

But it ain't free


• Open all windows full-size automatically from the startup. This function effectively eliminates the need for you to resize windows. Also, automatically opens the Internet Explorer windows maximized.

• Maximize or Minimize ALL in one click. Programm simply adds to well-known icons to the system tray and requires absolutely no special knowledge to operate. These magic icons in tray let you minimize or maximize all windows automatically, when you click them

Here is freeware which may do it

Or this


AutoSizer automatically resizes programs for you, keeping them at a specific size or keeping them maximized. One popular use is to keep Internet Explorer Maximized when you go on the web. It works with most programs, including Notepad, web browsers, and many others.

Price: Free
