To use any of the above commands in a macro in Microsoft Project, edit the macro and type the command instead of using the macro recorder. For example, to restore the application window, use the WindowState property of the Application object as follows:

Application.WindowState=pjNormal

To restore the document window, use the WindowState property of the ActiveWindow object as follows:

ActiveWindow.WindowState=pjNormal
