    Some sites like game
    sites I go to have a second window that pops up. The problem is the second
    window is a small window that cuts my view of the game off. How can I make
    this window bigger? Maximize is not an option as it claims to be maximized
    already. An example of this problem is a bingo site I play at. When you
    click on "play now" the small window with the bingo cards appear but it cuts
    off most of the bingo cards. Anyone know why?

    I've seen this before with some online card/casino games. Basically, beyond
    trying a different video driver (something I doubt will help) there is
    nothing you can do about it on your own machine. Send an email to the game
    developers, and complain. Their game isn't properly working with the windows
    GUI.

    No its just not game sites. It can be any site that pops up a window. It
    just recently started doing this and it does it to sites that I use
    frequently so I know its something that happened recently because these
    sites use to work fine. Man this is annoying. lol I hate it when I can't
    figure something out. :) Thanks for the response.

    Doh it was a pop up killer doing it! lol This pop up killer I had forgotten
    about because it installs right within MSIE so you don't see it. It was set
    not to let it resize windows. Disabled the pop up program and it works! I
    just assumed that was not the problem as the window was coming up
    partially.Well just wanted to post this case anyone else runs into the same
    problem. Thanks again.

    Interesting. I never considered that possibility. Thanks for sharing the
    solution!
