Small window

  Looby48 13:28 28 Sep 2010

When I open up a new window on my laptop, it opens up as a very small window. How can I resolve this please?

Close all other windows and drag the small window to the size that you want and then close it using the red x and see if that makes any difference.

Or if using W/7 the same as before but click on the maximize button on the top then close it using the red X.

I always drag the window to the size I want then close it using File/Exit.

This is the solution I was sent when I asked the same question a few months ago, it worked for me ( Windows 7 x64 )

Open only one IE8 window, on the upper bar of the window right click it and choose size, resize the window to the size you want then go to file menu and choose exit.

Regards, Chris.

To open new IE windows full size

1. Close all instances of Internet Explorer that are currently open, except for one.

2. Right click a link on the web page and select Open in new window.

3. Close the first instance of the browser that was originally open using the “X” in the top right-hand corner.

4. Resize the existing window by dragging the top and sides until it is full screen again.

5. Click the “X” in the top right-hand corner while holding down the Ctrl key.

The next time you open your browser, the window will once again appear full screen.
