Always get IE to open FullScreen?

I never can remember - how do I set IE to open full screen every time. It
really drives me crazy when it opens the smaller "windowed" screen.

Run your cursor around the small windowed screen and when you get a
double headed arrow left click and drag the page to full size. Do that
on all four sides of the window until the screen is full. Then close
the window by clicking X (top right corner) whilst at the same time
pressing Ctrl.

Regards,
Emrys Davies.

Right click on the IE icon in the Task Bar and select Properties\Shortcut
and on the Run Bar use the arrow and select Maximized

Thanks everyone. I those are both helpful suggestions.

Is there a way to make sure the screen is maximized if I click on a link
that opens in a new window? I don't mean a large windowed box but a
MAXIMIZED box?

Thanks again!

Well I believe there is a way if you create an IE shortcut and then
under properties tell it to open up maximized. Then tell File Types
under Windows Explorer -> Tools -> Folder Options to open up the
shortcut instead of IE.

But if you want to see something really cool, just hit F11 when IE
opens. Then F11 again to pop it back. This is called full screen mode.
And I believe once you have one opened in full screen, all links will
open up in full screen mode. <grin>


Cheers!

Wow really boe? You tell me that F11 doesn't work and it works on
thousands of computers I've seen over the years. And unless you are
not telling the truth, your files are corrupt (or your F11 key isn't
functioning)! Although I am betting that you are not telling the
truth and are just trying to waste people's time.






Cheers!

I got this response from another group and it seems to work fine. This may
not be the only solution but at least it does work.

Hi,
This will result in full-sized windows- not maximized.

Open a webpage. Stretch it out to fullsize. 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- don't use maximize.
Close the first IE window. Then close that resized window.

To always get a true maximized window...
AutoSizer 1.4- http://www.southbaypc.com/AutoSizer/
IE New Window Maximizer http://www.jiisoft.com/iemaximizer/index.htm

Hello Moron, Your bus is leaving!

Emry was helpful and did suggest the first part - you did EDIT OUT the rest
of the message which included the programs that did resize the window.

I don't understand people like you. Your first response looked like you
were trying to assist. I said thank you but it wasn't working for me. Then
all of your remaining responses must be coming from a spoofer because they
are neither useful or helpful.

Really boe? You didn't state that part of my suggestion didn't work,
but rather blanketed everything I said didn't work! So how am I
supposed to know what you had meant? Do you expect me to suddenly
become a mind reader?

And I don't believe you actually tried changing "URL:HyperText
Transfer Protocol" either. Which deals with how Internet Explorer
behaves. And you should have asked for more technical information if
you didn't know enough of what you were doing.

And whether or not you had tried the F11 trick or not. But if you do
this and left IE in full screen mode, all other IE windows opens up
the same way. That's as maximized as much as you can get.

Thus if you ignore what people tell you and give vague responses
back. You make it impossible for people to help you. Since I can't
trust you to follow directions, I afraid to tell you how to open up
all IE windows in maximum window. As I feel you will only follow it
half ass and screw something up. Then blame me for your new problem.

You just don't get it! You don't need those help me because I am an
idiot programs if you are fully capable of following simple
directions.

I don't understand people like you. Your first response looked

working for me. Then all of your remaining responses must be
coming from a spoofer because they are neither useful or

Not only don't you seem to understand people like me, but you don't
even understand yourself. As when you call people names who are
trying to help you (for free no less) and ignore what they tell you
to do. Well they are just going to move on and help others who are
more willing to actually listen and follow the helpful advice.

OK - I appreciate the fact you tried to help people but your solution does
not solve clicking on links.

As far as understanding you - try re-reading your own babble. Only 50% of
the statements were coherent. Try diagraming your sentences before you post
them.

OUT the rest of the message which included the programs that
did resize the window.

You just don't get it! You don't need those help me because I am an
idiot programs if you are fully capable of following simple
directions.

I don't understand people like you. Your first response looked
like you were trying to assist. I said thank you but it wasn't
working for me. Then all of your remaining responses must be
coming from a spoofer because they are neither useful or
helpful.

Not only don't you seem to understand people like me, but you don't
even understand yourself. As when you call people names who are
trying to help you (for free no less) and ignore what they tell you
to do. Well they are just going to move on and help others who are
more willing to actually listen and follow the helpful advice.






Cheers!

F11 does not give a Maximized window, it gives a Full Screen window.

Wow really boe? You tell me that F11 doesn't work and it works on
thousands of computers I've seen over the years. And unless you are
not telling the truth, your files are corrupt (or your F11 key isn't
functioning)! Although I am betting that you are not telling the
truth and are just trying to waste people's time.






Cheers!

WOW - that is the most amazingly wrong diagnosis I have ever heard! I can't
begin to state how off base that is.

The banana in the fridge is brown - Your fridge is broken - throw it out and
get a new one.

No luck but thanks.

Then your program files are corrupt! Nothing to do now except reinstall.

Always get IE to open FullScreen?
