Are you using IE9?
Also - let's be sure that we have our terms correct:
when you click on the pinned shortcut on the task bar (by the start button) then IE maximizes
when you click in a shortcut on your desktop - then IE is windowed (not minimized - right?)
minimized would be where no window appears, just a change to the taskbar showing that the window is minimized
No, I think I'm still using IE 7. Yes when I clicked on the pinned shortcut on the task bar it opened maximized, I right clicked on it and then on properties and it gave me the run opsion to set it to open maximized. No, when I clicked on the shortcuts on the desktop - then IE would open a window with the webpage but it was about 1/4 th screen. I could click on the little square figure in the upper right corner and maximize it to full screen but when I would close it and then click on the same desktop shortcut it would open minimized 1/4 screen again. If I would right click on the shortcut on the desktop iwouldn't give me the opsion to click properties. I did the two windows open suggestion and all seems well now. Thanks again for the help.
