    How can I change the position and size of the new window when IE8 opens a new session (other than a new tab)? I would prefer the new window to be maximized. Thanks.

    Whenever you close your last window, IE will reopen based on the settings that window was closed on.

    I don't mean a totally new session. I mean, for example, if I have IE8 open and I click a link in an email, a new session opens in a second window that is positioned in the upper left corner of my screen but isn't big enough to see half of the page. I'd like any new windows to open maximized.

    Open an IE window and maximize it and then close it and make sure the last IE window you close is maximized.

    Now attempt what you're trying to do again and it should open maximized.
