If you make Internet Explorer go to full screen, exit, and then open IE again - what happens?

Start IE5, right click any URL and select Open in a New Window.
Go back to the first IE5 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)
Close this second window, using the close box.
All windows should now open maximized.
And the trick is NOT to use the maximize button, for that's a temporary setting which will not be remembered.

Good luck,

CHUNKYLAD- Just so you dont get confused, Rikku's advice is for the first window that opens after clicking the IE icon. Tony's is for the second, third and so on. However, Tony's advice can also be used for the first window.

Well, actually, this is the way to start:

Right-click the Internet Explorer icon (on the Quick Launch toolbar) and select Properties.
On the Shortcut tab, next to Run, click the down arrow and select Maximized.
Click OK, and the next time you click that icon, Internet Explorer will take over the entire screen.

In addition to this:

If IE refuses to open maximized, despite the fact that you told it to, as described above, do this;
Go to Start/Run, and type Regedit.
Drill down to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main, and delete the value Window_Placement in the right pane.

For the 'child' windows, see the tip in my first post..
