Can someone please tell me how to get IExplorer to open in a full window. Mine always opens in a minimized window then I must maximize manually.

Tell us the properties of the applet used to initiate an Internet connection please. Usually, the windows size wanted initially is set there.

johnk, 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.

Oops!! Looks like I spoke too soon. This worked on the one page but now others do not work. Still opening minimized.
PS: I'm running Windows XP Pro
