When I right click a link and get it to open in a new window the new window is always very small, is it possible to make new windows always open to full size?

just try resizing the window by dragging a corner , when you close the new window hold down the `shift` key and click on the X (top left) , IE should remember from now on.

There is a reg edit to do this i believe as well as a program `maximiser` that can do the same.

Tried that but it still opens small.

i might have my keys mixed up , try the ctrl key.

if that does not work you can get `maximiser` from click here .

The reg key to edit is HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\fullscreen , you need to change it from "no" to "yes" , as always back up the registry before making any changes.
