+ 0 Votes Properties menu glen.harris 1 year ago Hi there, Assuming you are are using a Windows machine and talking about a specific application, you can right-click the applications icon then click properties. On one of the tabs there isyou should find a dropdown box with the option to run Minimised, Maximised and something else. Set the app to Max. Alternatively you can open task manager and right click the running application there where you'll find the same options. I don't have a Windows box to hand at the moment so can't give you more detailed info at present. Good luck, + 0 Votes Manually launch it... Rob Kuhn 1 year ago Is this shortcut/link calling a batch or command (.cmd) file? If not try this - This is assuming it's a Windows OS: right click on the shortcut/link. Copy the "Target" (click in the field and press CTRL-A then CTRL-C). Click the Win icon in the taskbar, select Run and paste it (CTRL-V) in the "Open:" field and click OK.
