I have W7 64 bit and IE9. When clicking on desktop icons to access web pages, the window only fills half the page (vertically). Using IE9 directly opens windows normally, but this can happen if then referred to sub pages. I have tried dragging to full screen and then closing but no difference.
this works for me on two windows 7 32 and 64bit machines.
Open a webpage. drag it out to fill the window so it appears fullsize. Don't use maximize button.
Choose any link on that webpage and right-click >>> "open in a new window".
repeat and drag that second window out to the desired size, don't use the maximize button.
Close the first IE window, followed by the second resized window,in that order.
now every time you open a window via a desktop url (shortcut) it should open that size.
does for me ,on IE8 ,I see no reason why IE9 should behave any different.
