    new program shows in taskbar and need to click taskbar to see it

    When clicking a program in start menu it shows in the taskbar and I need to click the taskbar to see the programs window.
    Very irritating. Is there a way to change some setting so when I click to start it just opens .
    After all I wouldn't have clicked if I didn't want to see it.

    Welcome to the Ten forum.

    Check to see what options are available in program. Sometimes they call this settings or tool. Check to see if program has an option to open minimized. Alter this setting.

    I know if it a Shortcut on desktop if you right click and look at properties there is a tab labelled "Shortcut" ___ Within that tab is option labelled "run" and you can choose window size. I wonder if you created shortcut and set this to Normal window and then tried from Start menu if it would remember its last state.
