My "click here" window opens small?

  pj123 12:55 17 Aug 2008

When I click on a "click here" in the Forum it used to open another Full Screen size window.

Now all of a sudden it opens at less than half the full screen. I have to maximise it to be able to read it without scrolling left/right and up/down.

I tried resizing using the bottom right hand doubleheaded arrow but that made no difference.

Any ideas please?

when it is open to full size go to "file then exit"
the next time you open the window it should be full size..

right click browser icon on desktop, Select Properties / Shortcut / Run / change Normal Window to Maximised.

Thanks, none of those worked.

When it is maximised and I go to File I don't have Exit, only Close.

That didn't work.

try a System restore...

Exit is at the bottom of the File menu

Or maximize and press the red X .

Hope this makes sense

Click on a click here link then maximize the window then open another link from that window and maximize that then close the first two windows then hold down Ctrl and close the last window

Sea Urchin, sorry but no it isn't.

MAT ALAN. I think I have already posted a problem with System Restore. I have never been able to to a System Restore. It just doesn't work.

Sorry VoG™ I already tried that as posted in my original thread.

the window that contains the "click here", click on the icon next to the "X" in the top right...

This should "normalise" that window, from it's maximised state. It will probably shrink to the size you are experiencing...

Drag this window to the size you want, (NOTE not clicking the maximise button; you must drag it!)...

The, if you wish, you can maximise this window.

Links that you click on in this window should now open to the size you had dragged the "normalised" window to.

Hope this helps.
