This problem just started today with my '98 box. When I open another window, it opens about a quarter of its normal size. I have tried stretching it out and holding Cntrl while I close it, but thats not working. What's the fix?

Assuming you're referring to Internet Explorer:

1. Open Internet Explorer and go to a page with links
2. Open a link in a new window
3. Close the original window
4. Grab the sides/corners of the remaning window and stretch the it to the size and placement you want - don't use the maximize button which is a temporary setting and won't be retained
5. Close the secondary window

All future secondary windows should now open to the size and position of that last window you closed.

Thanks, Miz, and you're right about I/E. I'll try your fix tonight when I get home.

It works like a charm, thanks. I think my problem was in not closing the original window first.
