    Maximize All...

    Yes we all know about minimize all, so we can see our desktop, but is there a utility that allows me to quickly MAXIMIZE ALL? thats what i want to do. Frequently i end up with 20 IE windows with different threads in them, all in miniscule windows, and i want to max them all so i can speed up my daily news/bbs intake of information. If there isnt such a utility you can think of, how would i go about writing a loop to maximize all the windows. I guess i dont know how to enumerate hwnds such that they are all there without duplicates, so i can simply loop through and maximize them all. Either way, thanks for your time.

    First off do not create a loop to maximize every handle.

    If you just want to do the IE windows, try searching the handles for IEFrame. Thats the name I get from WinSpy

    I dont want to discriminate against processes, i need a multi-perpose solution. What if one day i want to do word documents, or emails. Thats why its maximize all and not maximize some
