    IE opening minimized

    I'm not sure what caused this (ok, probably small children) but any webpage shortcut I have on my desktop now opens minimized. When I restart my computer, it helps, but eventually the minimizing will return.

    Seems a bit strange. But, you can normally fix the size for a new IE window by.

    1)Open a single IE window.
    2)Resize it to something other than full screen.
    3)Close the window.

    The new size and position should be the default for future new windows.

    Do as ileacy states, but use the File, Close on the menu. This will save the settings where closing the X in the upper right hand corner may NOT.
