Right click the shortcut and go to properties then click the shortcut tab.   Under Run:  change it from Normal window to Maximized.  

Hopefully this is what you are looking for.

close - but only some shortcuts have that, most only have 3 tabs (see attached) The shortcuts are all for weblinks and IE launches in half screen, even if you max it and then close it the next time you launch the shortcut it is in half size.

The file you attached is an actual word document and NOT a shortcut.   Perhaps this is not the best answer but if you store the file in your my documents and then create a shortcut to it on your desktop  you will then be able to open the shortcut's properties to open the way you want.

Hopefully that makes sense.

let me rephrase; I have a website www.msn.com I want as a shortcut on my desktop. I create the shortcut and when dbl clk it launches IE but in half screen size. I can manually max size it, but I want it to launch that shortcut (and numerous other ones I have on my desktop) in max size, not half size. The word doc was a pic of one of the actual shortcut in qustion

Sorry I wasn't expecting a picture to be in the word document.  

I do not know a way to open .URL files maximized.  Instead you can try created a shortcut to the page you want to open.

Right click blank desktop space - new - shortcut

for location enter ""C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" http://www.theurl.com "

This shortcut should have the option to run maximized.  

Hopefully someone else has a better solution.
