Maximise Windows - Vista Ultimate

  Press Man 20:14 30 Jan 2009

Hi Guys,

When I open a web page from "favourites" the window always opens in a reduced size. Is there a way to make them open "maximised". I know how to do this for short cuts on the "quick launch bar" but not favourites.

Thanks in advance.

dont know about vista but in xp it is usually drag to fit then close with alt f4 should then re open full size, might be worth a try

That seems to have worked. Just to add, I needed to open at least 3 windows and then hold ctrl and close with the red x. Thanks.

Sometimes if you maximize the window it sometimes doesn't hold the windows size the next time you open it, what I do in this case is to stretch the window manually to more or less the same size that maximize would have made it and then hold CTRL and click the red X with the left button, sometimes you can just close the window at maximized by going to FILE menu and selecting EXIT, and/or using the combination I have mentioned above if the first try doesn't work.

I have never been unable to have the window open at the required size by doing one of the above methods.
