    How can have all windows open maximized?

    I wonder if there is a way to set a default in Windows 8 so every window (including web pages) will automatically open maximized? Someone told me that a website/window will open in whatever state you exited it, but that doesn't seem to be working for me.

    AutoSizer sounds like it may be what you want. It's free.

    If not that I would try WinSize2

    System changes that initiate a reboot will default them back to 'windowed' mode, or
    a third party cleaner may be the culprit:

    Try Mr. Bailey's suggestion, it may make the fix permanent.
