How can I create a window with everything but the "restore/maximize" button?
CreateWindow(WINDOW_CLASS_NAME, // class

"My Window",	     // title

0,0,	   // x,y

GetSystemMetrics(SM_CYSCREEN),// width, height

NULL,	   // handle to parent 

NULL,	   // handle to menu

hInstance,// instance

NULL)))	// creation params

When I impliment this and called the ShowWindow(hwnd, SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED), there''s no MinimizeBox. And what about the CloseBox or something? I just don''t want a "restore/maximize" buttong so that my window is maximized all the time, but I do want to user to be able to minimize of close the window.

You also need the WS_SYSMENU option.
