This is way off topic but it may make someone's life easier. I have a HP 7 Stream with Windows 8.1 and it has to me a very annoying working such that it ignores all Desktop Shortcuts that are set to open in "Normal window" and instead opens them "Maximized". I was so ticked at this that a friend and I wrote a simple program to pretty much make the Desktop Shortcuts act normally. This was done by Microsoft to only small display units with little memory specifically
