WSH » WshShortcut » WindowStyle

Syntax:
object.WindowStyle

The WindowStyle property sets or retrieves how the application pointed to by the shortcut will be displayed when it is first launched. If WindowStyle is 1, then the application window will be set to its default location and size. If this property has a value of 3, the application will be launched in a maximized window, and if it has a value of 7, it will be launched in a minimized window.

If a value other than 1, 3, or 7 is assigned to this property, the shortcut will be launched in a window at the default location and of the default size.

Examples

Code:
Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set objShtCut = objShell.CreateShortcut _
    ("C:\Documents And Settings\DevGuru\Desktop\WinZip.lnk")
objShtCut.WindowStyle = 7
objShtCut.Save
WScript.Echo objShtCut.WindowStyle
Output:
7
Explanation:

This VBScript code sets the shortcut "WinZip.lnk" to be launched in a minimized window.
