Probably you may create shortcut with the command something like this:

Code: Select all

cmd.exe /c start /MAX "(whatever title, means nothing)"  "%programfiles%\far Manager\far.exe"
it should not care about is it terminal or not, just open it full screen (=MAXimized)

In practice, is this part of the (whatever title, means nothing) expression used somehow differently from the dummy?
In practice, if the opened (started) application is console-based, it really will get the title to it''s console.
With graphic windowed UI however, probably it still somewhere around, but not visible,
so doesnot really matter.
But you need to put it anyway, at least to prevent some bad end cases, just put empty string as in here:

Code: Select all

cmd.exe /c start /MAX ""  "%programfiles%\far Manager\far.exe"
this is not offtopic!
because the discussion is about,
will FAR get the defined title, as indesirable effect, or not?
FAR being console application, chances are it will accept the given title,
but fortunately, FAR override it upon started with own title.

and now look at this example:

Code: Select all

cmd.exe /c start /MAX "(HOLY GOD?!)" "cmd.exe"
Awe Maria, it accepts the title!

From the second time. Those. You need to start the console from the console again.

Thanks. Clear.

Just for reference, actually the most convenient for the most people way:

(should be the same on the windows 7 and 10 as well, isn't?)
