    sorry guys none of your suggestions from my previous post seem to be
    working. I have done what you are suggesting in the past when the window has
    been smaller than required but for some reason this time the 'window' only
    consists of the blue bar with the minimise/maximise/close buttons on it
    any further ideas


    previous post ....

    Please don't start a new thread about the same
    problem -- stay in the original thread, and answer
    questions/comments put to you there.

    Close Internet Explorer FIRST!!

    Click on Start\Run. Type in regedit. Navigate to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

    On the right-hand side, at the bottom, you will see an entry called
    "Window_Placement". Highlight it and Delete it. (or "Export" it first if
    you want to save it for some reason.)
    This resets the default window size for New IE Windows. The next time you
    launch IE from your shortcut, it will be the default window size.
    You can maximize that window and close it, and it will remember what you set
    it to, however all NEW IE Windows will be the default size.

    Thanks very much Unk, that seems to have done the trick.

    Sorry to Mike for starting the new thread but Unk may not have looked at the
    old one, luckily on this occasion my solution was found on a second entry.
    Thanks again for everyones help
