Re: How to open IE in "Full Screen" all the time?
bobwhite63, Follow the instructions below exactly and your problem should be solved.
Right click the shortcut icon for IE next to the Start button, choose Properties, change it from 'normal' to 'maximized'. Now open it.
Now right click any link on the page, choose Open In New Window....don't maximize it....instead, use the mouse to resize it to what you want it to be.
Now close the FIRST window you opened, and then close the new one you just resized.
Reopen IE from the shortcut icon again, and all windows from now on will be the size you chose and created.
Note: If you don't have an IE icon next to the Start button (Quick Launch area) use the shortcut in your Start/Programs/Internet Explorer and follow the instructions above.
Another alternative is to go to the link below and download "IE New Window Maximizer" which is Free.
Or, you can right click IE Toolbar and select Customize
There is in that box Full Screen icon, click on that and it stays full screen aan you close your customize box. I have it minimized for downloads and that was my first attempt with that. Darrell Lewis
If the IE window has two boxes at the top right corner, that
is between the _ and x, it is in full screen already. As some else mentioned that you will need to drag the four sides to it is in full screen position. I dragged mine down to it is in a small screen with a single box between the _ and x in the right corner but it will go to full screen clicking the box or the latter. You can make the print larger also with customise, add print, print preview, copy, paste - there are many options, I have small icons with no words to the right so I see all my icons. Darrell Lewis

other than iemaximizer, mentioned ...
in someone's response, the other resizing techniques only work until you manually resize another window as some later time and then you are back to where you are now.
You can solve this for yourself with a quick script. I am sure you have noticed how sometimes you click a link and suddenly the explorer window is full screen. This can be done by you for your "Home Page" and then no matter how rou resize windows in a session the next time you open MSIE it will be full screen.
Click on ?Tools? then ?Internet Options?? and place the following in the Home Page Address section: (all one line, no spaces!!!)
Be sure to put your actual desired start page in the single quote marks at the end (example: 'http://www.cnet.com'). The (800,600) portion should be set to match your display settings if you want it to be full screen. The above example is for 800 by 600 pixels.
To determine your screen resolution setting, right-click on any blank part of your Desktop, then choose ?Properties? to open the Display Properties window. Click on the ?Settings? tab, then look in the ?Screen Resolution? section for your current setting.
You could also run Internet Explorer from a shortcut with the KIOSK MODE switch added to the shortcut's command (iexplore -k) but then navigation is a little more difficult as you have to make use of some keyboard shortcuts -
IMPORTANT NOTE regarding my initial post ...
I was tired and typed some of that without thinking.
