Hello all,

Is there some way to permanently set the default size of new IE windows? I am referring to the windows that open whe, for example, you click on a link inside an email message. I would basically like to force IE to open fully maximized 100% of the time, never an exception. Is there some registry key to set this setting in?

Thanks

Open IE
resize the window borders so it will look as if it was maximized
don't maximize it
Close that window
Now the next time you open IE, if it's not maximized, it will still have a big size

Thanks. That is actually how it is opening ip right now, and for some reason really annoys me I would really like to just completely force it to open maximazied all the time. It certainly seems like there has to be some way of doing this because I know web sites have, in the past, changed the default size that my browser was using to open.

On my laptop, for example, new IE windows are opening completely minimized. Some website out there did that to me

Thanks for the suggestion, though
