    I was bored one day, and I had an Internet Explorer window open, so I resized it to just the bar on the top, and closed it. Now, all Links open like this, and it's very annoying.

    Also, I'm Running Windows XP.
    Any help Is greatly appreciated!

    Go back and do the same thing....with only one browser window open, resize it and close. It should return to normal.

    If that doesn't work, open regedit (Start > Run), backup the registry and navigate to:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]

    Delete the Value Name: Window_Placement

    It will reset the IE window to the default size and allow you to resize it.
