Full Screen Dialog

My dialog is in completion; its dimensions are of my desire and testing the dialog within VC++ proceeds, and the dialog is displayed according to my specified dimensions.

However, when I build my solution, I find my dialog to be full screen!

Despite my program being dialog-based, and maximised by default, it appears full screen after compiled. Has this anything to do with the fact that I had not made the "Use HTML Dialog" a selection of the Application Type in the MFC AppWizard?

BOOL CPCDlg::OnInitDialog()

  //Usual code goes here....

   //Change this to SW_NORMAL or as per your needs. For more information about
   //ShowWindow refer to MSDN.
   ShowWindow(SW_MAXIMIZE);

   return TRUE;
}

I think "maximised by default" is the same as "full screen".

Yes you're conclusive, and I've concluded what is the source of the dialog's dilemma, via experimentation. Therefore, I have gained realisation of what the solution is.

Firstly, is there a possibility of reverting to this prompt in my existing project?:-

If not, I need to be informed of a method where I can UN-CHECK that box highlighted in red.

Thanks man, you'd think Microsoft could have been courteous as to make this an inclusion of a menu of some sort.
