SOLVED-Desktop website shortcuts opening half sized windows
I have this happening for a while now. Forget restore. When I click any of my website shortcut, the window opens half screen. If I open the browser first (on Google search page for example), then the window opens full screen when I click the shortcut. It only happens with websites shortcuts, not with applications shortcuts. I tried everything I found on the web: stretch window with CTRL key depressed or open 2 windows - close 1st then 2nd, or right click task bar and select "show windows side by side", or reset IE, etc... nothing works (also right click shortcut - properties - open maximized, doesn't apply to website shortcuts since there is no such option).... Another thing that is happening: the command "send to Desktop (create shortcut)" when right clicking a Favorite doesn't work either. However everything works fine in Safe Mode. Please advise. Thank you.
I run Windows 7 64 bits - IE9.

Found the solution for this issue with Windows 7 pro 64bits, IE9....
1.-Open a website from your desktop shortcut,
2.-Look for a link on that website (ex: Contact us, Policy, etc...),
3.-Right click on that link and select "Open in a new window",
4.-Resize that window
5.-Minimize it and close the other window
6.-Go to File and press Exit with CTRL depressed.
The first time may only adjust the width but not the height.... if so, repeat the same as above but after step 3, repeat step 3 one more time, then apply steps 4,5 and 6.
