Ok guys, I gotta simple question that's buggin the heck outta me:

When I click on a link inside IE, it opens another window, why is that window so small I can't see it? I have to hit the maximize button. Is there a way to increase it's size without that?


GRRR lol
thanks

IE has been a pain for years when it comes to windows sizing ... follow this step by step and your problem should go away.


Right click the shortcut icon for IE next to the Start button, choose Properties, change it from "normal" to "maximized". Now open it and then right click any link on the page and choose "Open In New Window" BUT don't maximize it, instead use the mouse to resize it to the size you want.

Okay now close the FIRST IE window you opened and then close the new one you that you just resized. Now when you open IE and click "Open In New Window" all of the windows will be the size you set.

Thanks Sarge, that worked perfectly. Funny thing is I had this issue with Win XP, but forgot how to fix it. Now it's back to norm, and I love Win 7 pro 64 much much better than XP.
