Sizing internet windows

Once I reduce the size of an internet window, each time I go to it again it
comes up with the reduced size. Maximizing it doesn't work. How can I make
it default once again to a full size page? Thanks.

You can't. There's no fix to this.

It normally remembers the size it was when you close the window so....

Open a new window and Maximise it. Close the window with X and next time it
should open the same way. If not somethings wrong.

Windows remembers the size of the last Normal IE window closed.
Open such a link.
Don't use the maximize button.
Stretch the edges/corners so that the window fills the screen.
Close all other IE windows.
Close the stretched window.

If that doesn't do it try the REG file here:

Try maximizing manually by making the window fit the screen by dragging it
to the edges that does the trick

franksaunders and Alan make an important distinction: itís important
to manually resize the IE window by dragging. I had a similar problem
recently, and just clicking on Maximize did not solve it, whereas
manual resizing did. On other occasions, although not this recent
one, I have used another trick I picked up on another forum: closing
the IE window while pressing CTRL. This trick did not work with the
recent problem, perhaps because the IE window was being opening from a
hyperlink in an email message.
