    Open link in Maximized Window (IE6)

    Hi all,

    Is there a setting in IE to force a window to open maximized when I follow a link with SHIFT depressed, or right-click and Open in new window?

    Tx
    Regards,

    Internet Explorer doesn't "remember" whether it ought to be maximized, but it does remember window size. You can do the following:
    - Close all Internet Explorer windows but one.
    - If the remaining Internet Explorer window is maximized, restore it.
    - Resize the window to be as large as possible by dragging its edges with the mouse.
    - Close the window.
    Next time, opening a link in a new window should result in a non-maximized but "maximum size" window.

    BUT, If a pop up opens and you close it, the next window that opens MAY be the size of the pop up. <img src=/S/bwaaah.gif border=0 alt=bwaaah width=123 height=15>

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
