    Force fullscreen in explorer?

    Any one know a way of forceing windows to use the fullscreen option for all windows explorer windows. I need to be able to set it ideally through Group Policy as i dont want to have to reg edit each machine.

    Any help much appreciated.

    Right-click on the link, then select Properties > Shortcut. Select "Maximized"
    from the Run pull-down menu and click Apply.

    Repeat this procedure with other program links.

    No idea how you would set this via GPO

    Thanks for all the replys unfortunatly they dont seem to have sorted the issue i guess it is back to the drawing board.

    Just as a side point it is not the fullscreen i am after it is the removal of the menu bar from a windows explorer windows that i want, he fullscreen is just an extra efect of achieving that. If anyone knows how this can be done, please, please, please post
