Hi Mike B:
This is probably a silly question, but how do I “highlight” an icon on my desktop?

If you have an icon on your desk top for the program you want to have run maximized, try the following:
1. Highlight the icon and press, alt + enter, for the properties.
2. Tab to, Run, and there should be a combo box with the following options Normal Window, Minimized, & Maximized.
3. Arrow down to, Maximized, and then tab to, Apply, press the spacebar, tab to, Okay, press the enter / spacebar to save your changes & close.
If you don't have the Icon on the desk top then do the following:
1. Go to, programs, in the start menu or the proper Programs Files folder on the route of the C drive, find the program folder & open it.
2. Highlight the executable for the program, press your applications key, arrow up to, properties and press enter
3. Arrow down to, Send To, & press enter.
4. Arrow to, Desktop Create Shortcut, & press enter.
5. Now you can follow the first 3 steps from the top of this message.
Note: The icon that you created on your desktop from the program executable might be named something like, Program Name - shortcut. To change the name:
1. Highlight the icon & press your, F2, key.
2. You are now in an edit field so, change the name to what you want to name it & press enter to save the change & close.
Take care. Mike. Dodgers, try again next year!

Downloaded Jaws 2018(via "tandem") today, and now Windows Live Mail isn't
automatically maximized when I open the app(it always used to be). The
timing of this may just be a coincidence, but would appreaceate the steps
needed to maximize my WLM program when opened, and what's needed so it's at
"max" every time it's opened from now on.
