Is there a Windows-safe version of
--fullscreen?

I'd suggest adding

  Emacs.Fullscreen: both
Emacs.Geometry: 100x50 ; use suitable width x height for your display

to the HKLM\GNU\Emacs registry key, and this to .emacs:

  (add-hook 'window-setup-hook
            #'(lambda () (w32-send-sys-command ?\xF030)))

Thank you (and Lennart): I tried this .emacs customization and it produces results very, very close to a normal Windows "maximization."

There are two things missing AFAIK:

1) Not really full screen (no big matter)

2) You can move the maximized window (more irritating) -- but I just saw that this happens only on Windows 2000, not on XP.
