Chrome no longer seems to open my application shortcuts (pinned to the Windows 7 taskbar) in a maximized window. I didn't used to have this problem -- in the past, I'd simply create a new application shortcut on the taskbar (e.g., Gmail, Google+), open the shortcut, maximize the window, close it, and Chrome would remember that I wanted that shortcut maximized next time. That's no longer the case. Seems like this functionality has been broken since Chrome 13 or 14. (At least on my system.)
My operating environment:
- Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
- Chrome 14.0.835.186 m
- Shortcuts are pinned to the Windows 7 taskbar
How can I make Chrome application shortcuts start maximized? I've tried most of the supposed solutions I could find ( How to start Google Chrome with maximized window? ), to no avail.
--start-maximized to the shortcut target command line works perfectly for my regular Chrome shortcut, but it doesn't seem to have any effect on application shortcuts.
Anyone know how to force application shortcuts to start maximized?
