Making a link that opens in a new window in maximized size

by hunghung1 / March 21, 2011 1:03 PM PDT

First please ignore my post "How to fix very-minimized window?"

When I click a link that opens in a new window,the new window is in restore-down size rather than in maximized size.

My question is how to get the link opened in maximized size.

your other post and this one, your browser now opens as a smaller window rather than filling the screen.

With Internet Explorer open click ONCE on the browser window to make sure it has focus. Now press the spacebar once while holding down the Alt key. A small menu will open at the top left of the browser - selext Maximize. The browser should fill the screen. Now CLOSE the browser and reopen it and it should remain full screen.

You could also move your mouse cursor to each edge of the browser window and when it becomes a double headed arrow hold down the left mouse button and resize the window as you prefer - up to and including filling the screen (which is generally a shameful waste of screen real estate).
