    force application to maximize to set size?

    Anyone know of a way to force all applications in windows to maximize to a set size. I run my car pc desktop at 1024x768 and would like all apps to only maximize to 1024x700. I want the top 68 pixels to be used for something else.

    any ideas?

    Thanks

    Google for an application called MutilMon - it's a utility for multi-monitor systems (not a requirement) and if I remember correct you can create shortcuts to open apps at specific sizes and locations.

    You sure you don't mean UltraMon?

    I think that's what he means

    Create a new shortcut, and you can specify exactly where the window is positioned, and it's size

    Couldn't you just open the program you want up, resize it yourself to the desired position and then hit CTRL while clicking on the X in the upper right hand corner to close the window. Then whenever you open that window again it should be where you positioned it....

    Or does that trick only work with explorer/internet explorer windows?
