Window in window

When I open new window in existing window it shows as a narrow bar on the top of the screen and I have to maximize it or drag the bottom down.What should I do to get the new window automaticly in full size?
Any help would be appreciated.

Stretch it out to full size. Then click upper right to make it full size. Exit by using file>exit.

Type intenet explorer in search>right click>properties>make sure open maximized is shown.

Do this for both 32 bit and 64 bit. IE.

Bring up the browser. Upper left there is file. Click you will see exit. It is there, you looked in the wrong place.

I apologize, it may not be there. Left click on the bar>customize>add or remove commands.

I did this way:
1.Open IE in it's small window (with no other IE windows open). Then, click and drag the edges of the window to [nearly] full screen size.
2.Don't use maximize. Choose any link on that webpage and right-click> open in a new window. Stretch that second window out to the desired size.
That's it.
