Maximize an internet shortcut on desktop

I have a shortcut to an internal web document on a Windows XP desktop. I'm trying to see if there is a way to force the IE7 window that opens to be maximized after clicking to open the shortcut.

Hello chadruehl,

Click on a link to open a second browser window. Drag the corners of the new window to full screen. Do not hit the maximum icon. Close the first browser first, second browser second.
Modify the registry key HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FullScreen REG_SZ to "yes".

Opening Internet Explorer Full Size

Hope this helps!
