    Setting default window size (6.0 SP1)

    Some sites and pop-ups open a browser window that's not fully maximized. How can I stop IE from using that as the default window size the next time it launches? It's really annoying to have to keep dragging the window back to full size.

    Thanks for any help.

    A simple if inelegant workaround: keep an IE window with the desired size open all the time (it can be minimized). Open all sites you visit in other windows, and take care to close them before you close the correctly sized window.

    Hans' sounds like a good idea and no inconveince to doing it. I've found if something messes with the window size I want, this has seemed to work IE5, 5X or 6SP1. Opening another new duplicate Window from the existing one, keep the first one open, stretch the second manually to desired size then close the original and close the other one from File Close or X it doesn't matter while holding down Ctrl key and you have window control back.
