Web page always comes up small - help?

My problem is that at times when I click on a topic on a web page the page I request comes up small and I first have to restore it.

Could you please advise me how to overcome this, if it is possible.

Start IE, right click any link on a web page, and select Open in a New Window.
Go back to the first IE window you opened and close it.
Return to the second window and manually drag it to fill the screen.
(Do not use the maximize button, for that's a temporary setting that will not be retained.)

Now press the Ctrl button, and close this second window, holding the Ctrl button depressed, using 'close' in the File menu (important!).

This should force Windows to remember the settings, and windows will now open maximized.

Good luck,
