Getting IE back to full screen

A while ago I had IE and a word document on the screen I resized them both to get a better view.
Now evertime I open IE it shows up small, how do I get it to appear normal size when I open it?

Open IE (not maximized) and resize it how you like. Right click on a link within the page and choose "open in new window". Resize the new window if it's not right. Now File/Exit this 2nd window and then File/Exit the first window.
