    I suspect that this is a topic that has been around the Lounge in the past but I was unable to find anything with Search that seemed truly applicable. I have tried a lot of the tricks available on the Internet to open Windows maximized and none will work, at least not consistently. I know that there are many others who have this same situation and am hoping that someone, somewhere will be able to come up with a way to always open Windows maximized. Any help/comments would be much appreciated!

    To start just have one instance of IE running. Then manually size the IE windows to what ever you wish. Close IE by holding down the Shift key and clicking the "X" in the upper right corner.

    I have also heard some posters that have to open 2 instances of IE and maximize each using Joe's method then close each instance one at a time with the Shift, File, Exit commands. Shift, File, Exit is supposed to set the size at what it is when you close it so it opens the same size.
