Windows 7: IE11 pinned sites suddenly opening minimized

11 Feb 2016   #1

IE11 pinned sites suddenly opening minimized

I have encountered an issue where my pinned sites (I have several on the task bar) are opening minimized. Up until this behavior started they were opening maximized.

Another strange behavior is that my IE11 shortcut on the task bar ignores the shortcut settings to open IE11 maximized and always opens IE11 in a window.

I can trace the behavior back to right after my IE11 was updated with KB3124275.

IE11 version: 11.0.9600.18163
Update Versions: 11.0.27 (KB3124275)

I have searched here and elsewhere looking for some insight on this and found nothing. I have tried closing all other programs, opening IE11, maximizing and closing and nada. I would appreciate any insight.
