Check that shortcut or icon that starts IE. Right click and look for the Maximised check box.

When starting a new IE from another there is NO function/setting to tell the child of IE to start full page. Never has been. But you can TRAIN IE to some size. Shift click a link and resize the page. Don't maximise it. Close the page, shift-click and re-size again if need be. Close it and on the next shift-click on a link it should open to its newly trained size.

In reply to: WINDOWS XP

1. Create a shortcut to Internet Explorer on your desktop.
2. Right-click on that shortcut, and select "Properties".
3. On the "Shortcut" tab, in the "Run" box select "maximized".
4. On the "General" tab, tick "Read-only".
5. Click on the "OK" button.

Thereafter, double-clicking on that shortcut will open Internet Explorer 5 or 6 maximised.

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?
