query re opening new windows

  Cessna 00:18 11 Dec 2006

recently any new windows that open following clicking on links are opening up in small little windows. i prefer to have all new windows open maximised. i remember seeing this option somewhere that you can set all new windows to open maximised, but i cant find it now!!!! also you used to be able to do a shortcut like hold down control and drag the window to full screen and release control and the pc would remember this for all new windows. however this doesnt seem to work for me either.

who can jog my aging memory on how to keep all new windows and links opening maximised??

Are you using IE7

Try resetting web settings:Tools/Internet Options/Advanced/Reset.

Another thing is to just use your cursor on the edge of the page and pull to max and close.Then try the links again.

As skidzy, but close using File > Close

If you are running IE and skidzy's advice doesn't work, try opening a new window that contains another link, open that link in a second new window and stretch this one manually to fill your screen (Do not use maximise button), then close the first window down and then the second. Works for me, but I don't know if it works on all versions of IE.
