    Start Full Screen (IE7)

    Simple question - I hope. I have created desktop icon links to open my most used sites. Apart from Google, my Home Page, all the others start up small. I know I can maximise them with a click, but how do I get them to start Maximised automatically?

    Right-click each shortcut in turn, and select Properties from the popup menu. You can specify that the app should start maximized: change the Run property from Normal window to Maximized.

    Hans - Thanks for that, but the Internet Shortcut Icons do not have this option, different screen entirely for a Web shortcut.

    In that case, you'll have to extend the Internet Explorer to full size while it's not maximized, then close it. It should remember this setting until a web page opens a new window at a specific size. (For some reason, Internet Explorer doesn't "remember" that it should open maximized.)

    Hans - Many thanks once again, only a small item but annoying.
    That solved the problem <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23>
