I have a particular program that, when I use "open with" from the context menu to open a file with that program, opens minimized to the taskbar. To maximize it, I must use task manager. The desktop shortcut to the application works fine, and is set to open the program maximized. Thanks.

What kind of program is it? Generally in Windows I think it is always worth a try to use Open With to set another program to open a type of file, then change it back. It is low risk and may reload the switches to the program.

Other than that I would use a Registry Search tool to try to find the open with details for the program. Before attempting to poke around in the Registry it is a good idea to back it up first. If your System Restore works well than making a Restore Point should cover you. Or you can used a dedicated Registry Backup such as Registry Backup from Tweaking.com
