    In the past when I launched Internet Explorer it always came up in the Maximize size on the screen, now it comes up in the small size about half of the time. A small nuisance, but I would appreciate any help to get it back to coming up in Maximum size. Thanks

    Instead of maximizing the window, when it opens up,place the curser on the bottom right corner of the window,hold the left mouse button and drag the widow open to whatever size you want.The next time you open it , it will open to the size you chose.

    rude is correct with this one. Windows XP now remembers the last time you sized it the way rude mentioned.

    If anyone would like to test the fix,Place the curser on the bottom right corner of the window,hold down the left mouse button and move the mouse anywhere you like and let go of the button.Now close the window and reopen it,you have just resized the window and it will stay that way until you apply the fix in my previous post.
