IE 8 opening

  heepster 12:03 14 Jun 2010

When I open a new page it opens a very small window. Is there a way to make it open larger windows Thanks. Using xp sp3

Open it fully, then close it using "File then Exit"

Thanks rawprawn, but is there a setting on IE 8 that automatically opens it large?
I have never encountered this problem before and havent changed anything to cause this.

Do as rawprawn has said, that 'registers' the size for it to open up in next time.

Did it work .If not there is a different setting if you use W/7 that worked for me when no other setting would.

No it didnt work, still opens small windows in IE8.

Firstly you can try and right click the I/E icon. properties.And make sure normal window is in the dropdown bar.

Or open a new page and remove all other pages then drag to the proper size and shut it down using the red X.It should reopen in normal size if not try this.

Last one that worked for me.

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.
