A while back, I believe I posted on how to “Customize the Size of Restored Windows” in IE. I received feedback stating that I should bring the cursor to the edge of any restored window until it becomes an arrow and, holding down control + alt, bring the window to the desired size and position. Future restored windows would similarly appear in that size.
However, I have been trying that trick for some time now, and I would say that it only works maybe 1 in every five times. I generally do it using the left ctrl + alt keys and by making the cursor become a diagonal arrow by bringing it to any corner of a restored IE window. Of the generally few occasions where I get any effect, it is usually only a partial effect. For example, if I reduce the size of a window such that the left edge is moved into the right, the left edge of a future restored window would likely stand at an intermediate position between the original restored window and the modified window that represents where I really want the edge to be.
Am I doing something wrong?
