IE 7. New window looks like a column

  numskull 10:12 21 Jun 2008

If I click on a "click here" link on this page the window opens column shaped. I have dragged the edges and maximised the page. The page will restore to the new size but after closing the window it returns to the column size. How do I get it to stay normal size?

after draggging to full size try close by going file>close not the Xin the corner

As above drag to full size and close using the Red X

Drag the "column" window to size you like. Double click on title bar to maximise window. Double click on title bar again to restore (to your chosen size, hopefully).

This must be done when no other Internet Explorer windows are open, or they'll "remember" the column size and shape.

Thanks bjh.
Did as you said, minimised second window to taskbar, closed other window and it seems to have done the trick.
