Open a window with a link on the page, maximise it. Now click on the link and drag the new window to the size you want it, then minimise it to the taskbar thus revealing the original window underneath. Close that original window using the X in the top right-hand corner. Now restore the dragged window from the taskbar and close it using the X in the top right-hand corner. All your windows should now open that size from now on, jewels49.
