It is coded into the executable it isn't stored any place.

CrazyOne, this is a dynamic situation, you meant that exe changes its bytes itself?

a.marsh, Just push F11 key when you are in Internet explorer and will see what i mean.

As Crazy states it is in the exe, it is window size, just like the min and max functions. It doesn't change the exe, the function is coded into the exe

ShortCut keys are coded into the Application usually. In other words when I authour a piece of software I can trap for KeyBoard input from within the Application if a particular key or set of keys in seguence are invoked then I have my app look at these keys and if it meets the criteria I have setup then I have the app do whatever it is I have coded for. In this case IE has that information stored in its exe or possibly in a dll. It isn't something that can be edited or changed unless one reverse engineers the app.

Maybe, i didn't explain so good...
I know what a virtual key is, and where is located.
What i want to know is....
Scenario:
You have IE open, push F11 and it goes to theater mode, right?.
You close it, right?
and...
When you open IE again, it remains in Theather mode unless you hit F11 key again, right?

How IE is aware of its state when starts?


Cheers

Something new every day...
I'd guess that this is on the same lines as applications remembering window size, which I always thought had to do with the registry or some .ini file. Interesting...
