from the toolbar menu has never worked without continually FU the thing.

In RO:
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.

In windows:
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.
