[Coco] Launching VCC in maximized mode using Win 10

Henry, the windows properties in VCC are a part of the window itself and are not controlled by VCC, other than true full screen (which has no access to the menus). Sadly this is in Joseph's original program design. The original resolution was most likely 640x480 which (at the time) was the standard screen resolution.
Could this be fixed? Yes and that's exactly why people have started on a "new" VCC which will fix many of these problems.

In messing with this for a bit after seeing your post, I did find I could set the properties on the exec (right click on the exec, not the shortcut) and mess with the settings in the "Compatibility" tab by checking the "Run in 640x480" screen resolution", which made VCC start in that resolution and fill the screen.
Other than that, the current version is stuck with what we have. Hopefully, something better is coming :-)

I am having trouble launching VCC in Full screen mode
I can launch Vcc full screen if I create a shortcut and change the properties of it to launch as "Maximized", but there does not seem to be the same option when launching the original .exe
The GUIU i am using with my Arcade 1up does not launch short cuts.  it needs the path to the original .exe and will only launch that way.  I tried to modify the CFG file but there does not seem to be an option to launch full screen by changing the script in that file

Any suggestions?  Right now the best I can do is force the program to be launched in a fixed Window.  This lets me launch it bigger than I could normally but it also plays havoc with the Screen resolution
