favorites not opening properly

by darrellkk / May 14, 2010 12:21 PM PDT

when I open a favorite webpage it just opens with the top 1/3 of page showing. I can max it and I can drag it larger. This started all at once.

Care to tell us which one you are using? I have the solution if you're using IE whatever.

to my free software site. Download and install IE New Window Maximizer. It will force IE to open full page every time.

Feel free to download anything else you want.

Thanks for the help. I downloaded the IE maximunizer and it did change things. It still does not open with a full page, but it is all on the screen now. I can live with this.
