I installed a new hard drive and reinstalled XP Pro and IE 7. On my old drive IE 7 would maximize a new window when I clicked on a link (IE 7 opens maximized when first started). I know it's a little problem but it drive me nuts having to maximize a new window every time. I have tried to manually drag the borders of the window to max postion then exit but it still opens up as a small window. Any ideas?

Thanks

Hello there!

I have a great and quick solution for you. Wherever you have the Internet explorer icon, right click on it and click Properties.

If you are not on the shortcut tab, then go there. Down the Window you will see " Run: [Normal Window ] "

Change that drop down to " Maximized "

Did this fix your problem, my friend?
