First go to the IE icon next to the start button that you normally use to connect to the net with...right click it and choose Properties, and change it from NORMAL to MAXIMIZED with the drop down button.
Now open IE and right click any link on your homepage, choose Open In New Window. Now resize it with your mouse by moving the mouse over the corner or sides of the window until it turns into a double headed arrow. Hold down the left mouse button and drag the corners or the edges until the window is the size you want it to be.
Now close the FIRST window that you opened....and then close the new one you just resized.
Now open IE again, right click a link, choose Open in New Window and it should now be the size you made it before........and the second windows will all open this way from now on.
It should also work this same way with any other windows you open, such as Windows Explorer or shortcuts on your desktop if you open more than one at a time.
I am using windows 98
when I open a secondary window it appears minimized
as far as I know I havent changed anything.
any help would be appreciated
