windows not opening maximised

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Angel thoughts, Jan 25, 2004.

  1. Win 98 SE
    I.E. 6
    Windows not opening maximised or fully. Some slide off to the right while
    others open slightly smaller than maximised. How do I get the windows to
    open fully all the time and stay where there supposed to be?
    Thanks to all who try to help :) this one has got me puzzled

    Close all instances of Internet Explorer except one. Open a new
    window, and close the original. Type (case sensitive) the
    following into the address bar (where XXX,XXX is your screen
    resolution), and press ENTER:


    When the new window re-sizes, hold the CTRL key and close the
    window. New windows should now open at full size, with everything

    Example, if your screen is set at 800 x 600:

    You may ask me, and you may ask the many other posters
    who offer good advice in this group. What you should be
    aware of, is that when you ask a question, it may not
    always be answered so quickly -- this is not a chat group,
    and your question may go unanswered for hours, days,
    or never be answered at all; but that's very rare in this
    group. Just ask away -- any topic -- but be prepared to
    wait, if necessary.
