After reading all the submitted answers to last week's question, in one form or another, many of you gave the same great solutions. However, a few of you took the extra steps to give me two answers instead of one, which I thought would be helpful in case one method worked and the other didn't. Below you'll find this week's answer. If you want to discuss this topic or any of our previous Q&As further, check them out right here. Our members are talking, so don't miss out.:
Is there an easy way for Windows to always maximize a window size when I launch an application? Windows has forgotten my settings.
--Submitted by Karen C. of Birmingham, AL
The simple way is to:
1. Open an application (such as Excel).
2. Maximize the window using the Maximize button in the top-right corner.
3. Hold either Shift or Ctrl on your keyboard and close the application window by pressing X or File > Close/Exit.
The other way is to:
1. Right-click the shortcut icon that you use to start the application.
2. From the pop-up menu, select Properties.
3. There will be four tabs, click the Shortcut tab.
4. Look for Run:; next to it will be a drop-down menu.
5. Select Maximized from the menu.
6. After you are done with the above, click the OK button.

When I play certain MP3 songs that I've downloaded on my computer, they don't display the name of the song or artist. And it happens in both MusicMatch and Windows Media Player! Is there any way to fix this?
