One common complaint is that IE will not open a spawned window maximised. This is not a feature in IE. You can TRAIN IE to open a larger size and you can set IE to start full size. But to tell IE to launch all IE occurances to full screen is not supported.
To change IE to start full size, right click on the IE icon/shortcut and change the entry "Run" to "Maximised."
Recently, when I open a web page it opens as a minimized banner and I have to manually maximize it. I assume there is a default application to blame, but I can't figure out how to fix it, nor do I know what caused it.
My operating system is Windows Me; internet access with Microsoft Internet Explorer provided by Comcast High-Speed Internet.
