General Useful Modification on Command Console Windows
« on: November 29, 2011, 02:54:02 AM »
For all command console windows called by the various functions of the Windows Repair tool,
could be more elegant to launch them 'maximized' in order to force Windows to automatically
dock the windows in the upper left corner, and the result should be more ordinate and elegant;
in addition this should allow the user to better follow what is happening on his monitor.

Thank you, hexist.

Not a bad idea. Let me test it out and see how it does :-)

Looks like I wont be able to. I use psexec.exe by sysinternals to run the cmd windows under the system account. This helps gets things repaired that under vista and 7 the trusted installer would normally block.

I checked and there is no option to run the cmd windows maximized.

The /MAX is under the START command

START ["title"] [/D path] [/I] [/MIN] [/MAX] [/SEPARATE | /SHARED] [/LOW | /NORMAL | /HIGH | /REALTIME | /ABOVENORMAL | /BELOWNORMAL] [/AFFINITY <hex affinity>] /WAIT] [/B] [command/program] [parameters]

I mean a 'filename.bat' or 'filename.cmd' like:

@echo off
start /MAX psexec.exe .....

Oh :cry: I'm sorry about that.
So I don't know how we can do.

May be lucky in a future...
