I am running IE 8. When I click a link on a page that opens a new browser window, the new window opens in minimized size. I must manually maximize each time. I searched this forum for solutions, and as a result I: 1. Tried maximizing manually, then holding the "Shift" key and clicking the "X" in the top right window, which should force the app to remember to open maximized. This did not solve the problem. 2. Tried using the manual resize with a new window (click and hold the lower right corner of the window and make it full size.) This did not solve the problem either. In each case, I restarted the computer. What is mind-boggling is that the minimized size to which the browser windows now opens is a size I manually set ONCE, and now it is seemingly locked forever. What more can I do to get new browser windows to open in maximimized size. Thanks!
