Fix Desktop Shortcuts on small display devices running Windows 8.1

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 says:

You have a device that is running Windows 8.1 that meets the following criteria:
The Windows 8.1 Update (KB2919355) is installed.
The device has a screen size of less than 10 inches.
The device has 1 gigabyte (GB) of memory or less.
If any of you would be interested in the program it can be obtained at
