Just to say that I am successfully using the info given in the two 
mails quoted in a published app - my particular requirement was to 
make sure the actual window size (i.e. what's **inside** any 
decorations) was maximised so that there was exactly enough room on 
the screen for menu bars, toolbars and decorations and nothing else. 
My publisher considers that this combines minimum distraction for the 
user (a child) without compromising the familiar environment - i.e. a 
kiosk-type arrangement is considered inappropriate. Of course without 
Ken Ray I would not have known anything about the tricks Windows can 
get up to to defraud one's expectations...
