    Is there a way to set IE to open links that automatically open in a new window in a fully maximized window. Example when using yahoo, if I click on a link in an e-mail, it open in a window the size of a small notecard. Can I just set it so the window opning will be already maximized?

    Hi AlMujtahid ,

    If you maximize it, then minimize it to the taskbar (-) then then click it from the taskbar to open it again. Then close (x) it, the next time you open it, it should be maximised. That's going from memory, but I do know that it's a quirk of MS.

    If that doesn't do it, have a play but it goes something like that.

    Sorry it's rushed, but I'm just on my way out.

    Cheers

    Liam
