I created a screen mode in "Makemodes" that is close to the full screen
size of my monitor minus the Task bar.
I selected that as the monitor def in Configuration-display.
I have a RPCEmu shortcut on the Taskbar, and in the Properties-Shortcut
Tab, I've set it to Run: Maximised.
When I click on the Shortcut in the Taskbar, RPCEmu is run, then auto
That way there's no FU.
