Sizing of newly opened windows online.

  Brumas 22:20 30 Sep 2004

I am embarrassed to ask this most basic question but I have forgotten the procedure.
I connect to the internet using Outlook Express and ever since I reformatted the hard drive (thank heavens for the supplied Sony system recovery disks!) whenever I click on a link to view details of a past transaction I have completed on eBay it opens in a very small window which irritatingly I have to maximise - sorry for the rather long sentence!
How do I make the window open maximised when it opens initially?
I am running windows XP with SP2.

drag the window with your mouse to the edges top and bottom and close the window useing close on the file menu not the x in the corner

Close all windows except the small one. Drag its sides to fill yje screen (do not use the maximize button).

Close it using File/Close (NOT the X).

The next time it should open full-screen.

Thank you Stalion & VoG for your prompt and efficient response. Can I take my dunce's cap off now?
