    New windows only half screen size (IE 6.0.2900 SP2)

    <img src=/S/help.gif border=0 alt=help width=23 height=15> Whenever I open a new window, e.g., I click on a URL or something else, the new window comes up in the centre of my screen at about 50% of the screen size. I then have to click on the full-screen icon to get it to full screen size. Does anyone know if there is something I can change or set that will have new windows come up at 100% full screen size? Any insight that anyone can provide will be greatly appreciated. Thanks. <img src=/S/compute.gif border=0 alt=compute width=40 height=20>

    Please see <post#=457479>post 457479</post#>. You can't fix it permanently, but it's quick to fix once you know how.

    You can stretch the window so that it is almost covering the full screen and then close it. The next time you open the window it should open to the same demensions. HTH

    Ron,
    Also check out the thread starting with <post#=338446>post 338446</post#> The post by Big Al, worked for me.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Another option is a freeware program, IE New Window Maximizer
