Not sure I'm understanding you. Can you be a little more specific. Like what kind of window?

Sorry, I still don't understand.

You can open a folder, a document, a picture file. You can launch a program via a shortcut. I have no idea what a "baby" window is!

You need to specify what exactly you are trying to open. For example, if I were trying to open internet explorer, that's what I would say I was trying to open. If I was trying to launch Microsoft word, then I would I was trying to launch Microsoft word.

But when you tell me you're trying to open a "baby" window, I have no idea what that applies to.

Sorry. :tazz:

Ok,

Let me try to understand this a little better.

When you open yahoo, the window is maximized... correct?

But when you click on a link and a new window opens, then the new window is smaller? Is that the problem?

The Yahoo dsl browser is based on Internet Explorer. This means that the browser also has the same limitations as IE.

As far as I know... IE cannot be set up to maximize links when it opens a new window... and neither can the Yahoo dsl browser since it's based on IE. (someone correct me if I'm wrong!)

The best you can do is to enlarge the screen to where it is "almost" maximized. Here is a quick way to do it in IE. You can try it with the Yahoo browser to see if it works the same way.

Close all internet windows and any other window you have open
Now open your yahoo browser.
Next, click on a link which will open a small window
Now close the first yahoo browser window you opened, but leave the small window open

Go down to the taskbar and right-click on a blank area. A menu will show up. In the menu, select "Tile windows Horizontally".

The small window should open up to a size that is "almost" maximized.

This is the best you can do while using IE or Yahoo because of the limitations built into the browser.

Now, close all internet windows, reopen your Yahoo browser, and click on a link. The link window should open "almost" maximized.

Hope that helps.
