    New Page Size

    I'm a new lounge member still running XP and IE8. When I click on a link in my email a new page opens up that is smaller then full size. Is there a setting area where I can specify the page size or default to full size?

    If I remember well, you need to resize the IE window to the size you want, by dragging borders etc., then close it. It should open in that size, when you open it again.

    Open the IE8 and size the window to your liking. Then hold down the CTRL key while clicking the “X” to close the program.

    To both Ruirub and jwitalka,
    Thanks but only the first time opening of IE can be enlarged, closed and reopened to full size. My problem occurs when I've already opened IE and then open some other link on that page.

    Try Internet Options, General, Tabs, Settings, Always open pop-ups in a new tab.

    Thanks BruceR. This is the first time I've been able to get the TAB function working.
