This has been driving me crazy.
When i am on a web site the page opens to a full size. But when i click on a page inside that web site it opens to a small window that i need to expand by clicking the square in the top right hand corner
Isn't there a box that i can check somewhere to open window pages to a normal size?

When creating your post, "Help" is not going to stand out and doesn't relay what the issue is.

As to your issue, look up


Via the Forum Search and in there is your answer.

My answer is you are probably using the timebomb called Internet Explorer which is still open to installing any number of unsolicited softwares on your machine.

If you want a fix for that and your issue, try Firefox.

It's what I use.

Applies to IE. Applies to Windows ME.

And Firefox works on Windows ME too.

It seems you found Tufenuf's fix, but didn't do the steps and tossed out the known solution?

I read the 3 articles posted, but it doesn't seem to be what i am looking for.
If it is, then it is way to advanced for me.
I know basic stuff,

You can make such an icon.

If there is one on the desktop, hold down the control key and click on the IE icon. Now drag and drop it on the Quicklaunch. Then let go of the Control key.

You can do this. The article works.

IE didn't offer such a feature and frankly, it's been years since Microsoft updated it.

Today, people want more...

Best of luck,

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
