    Maximize IE6 from shortcut (Windows 98SE fully uptodate)

    The situation is: if I open IE6 from the icon next to the start button, it opens full screen. Great!
    When I go to a web site, it's still full screen. If I do "file-send to-create shortcut" I get a shortcut on the desktop. Great!!
    I close IE, then click on the shortcut. It takes me to the website which opens half-size. Groan!!

    This is the problem, as I have a dozen or so of these shortcuts to websites. Where I have a shortcut to a local software package sitting on my PC, "right-click-properties" shows a window with two tabs: General & Shortcut. The shortcut tab has a setting which allows me to maximize the screen. This works OK.

    Where I have a shortcut to a web site, "right-click-properties" shows a window with two tabs: General & Web. Neither tab shows a command which allows me to set the opening window size. So I can't set the window size by this method. Stuck again!

    I'd appreciate knowing how to open IE from a desktop shortcut icon link maximized.

    You could try this suggestion, but I doubt it is written for Windows 98... Note the suggested Program at the bottom.

    I find The Elder Geek site brilliant for some questions ( not that I am assuming you are old or a geek <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>)
