Windows 7: automatic opening of browser window at full-screen size...

automatic opening of browser window at full-screen size...


First, sincere thanks for all prior insightful remedies...

Upon opening the first browser window it opens to full-screen. Subsequent new browser windows open in the lower-right corner at 25% screen size.

Q: is there a way to have every subsequent (i.e., after the first one) browser window open at full-screen size?

thank you

Hello Dean,

Have a look at this post here IE Only Opens In Small Window?

See if that helps, not really sure it will, that's why my preference is tabbed browsing instead of opening new windows.

Internet Explorer Tabbed Browsing - Enable or Disable

If that's not what you're looking for I'm sure others will come along with more suggestions.

Also, if you need to resize often (due to frequently switching monitors) you may want to close the 2 windows using the keyboard shortcut alt-f-x.
