Excel 2010 open maximized

I have installed Office 2010 Pro Plus on Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit.  Excel will not open maximized even with the shortcut set to maximized.  Is this a bug?  Is there a fix/workaround?

Kato, I can confirm having the same behavior. Annoying and definitely a bug, in my opinion.

Workaround: place the following code in PERSONAL.XLSB, in ThisWorkbook:

Private Sub Workbook_Open()

    Application.WindowState = xlMaximized

End Sub
