annoying one that i feel i should know the answer to. maybe its the beer. when i click a link which opens a new window, the new window is only about 1 1/2 inches square. how can i get the new window to open "maximised". thanx in advance.

Drag the edges of the IE window to fill the screen.

Then close the window.

Reopen and it should open miximised.

tried that, but every time i restart my pc i get the same. is there a permanent fix?

As you close the window hold the left control key down.

This is a common problem - Do not know of a fix.

Use the middle button top right of IE screen to maximise your window, (left of the little X), then close your browser, open again and it should fill the screen for you. j.

back to the top. anyone else have any ideas?

After you've dragged it to fill the screen, don't use the X to close it.

Hold down CTRL and File/Close from the menu.
