Not getting full size page when clicking on links

  terryp96 15:51 29 Jan 2005

HI, when I click on links on Internet pages I don't get a full page coming up, instead I get the page reduced to a 1" square and I have to click on full size to correct, any ideas?
I am running ME

Close all IE windows except the small one.

Drag its sides to fill the screen (do not use the maximise button).

Close the window using File/Close (not the X).

HI Vog. just tried that and it still does the same, the small window comes back

Hi again VoG just been trying things, turned Popup Stopper off and things appear to be back to normal. Is this likely to be the cause or has it worked because of your suggestion?

Vog I spoke too soon the problem remains, anything else you can think of.

click here and scroll down a bit for a registry fix.

VoG knows better than me but... can't one use Ctrl plus the X to close a window retaining its size setting?

Try a small programme called iemaximizer click here

Thanks to you all for your info.
One question for Vog, could I cock anything up with your suggestion, I'm not that proficient in messing with the registry, in fact I'm scared stiff.
I've just tried your method without doing the registry fix and it appears to work, thanks VoG

It is safe enough. Remember that in ME you have System Restore if things go pear shaped - highly unlikely.

thanks Vog, my final message didn't make it to the forum. I would just like to thank you, it appears to be solved now, I will bear the System Restore in mind if I have to delve deeper.
thanks again
