    Please advise how I can open my web pages in the full moniter view instead of having to click on the two little boxes in the right hand corner. This really disturbs me to have to do this everytime I surf to a new website and I know there is a setting that will do this for me somewhere in my pc. Thanks for the help . Yada :)

    If you X out a IE explorer window when it is small windowed it will open small windowed. Please have full screen then click the X and it should open full works for me

    If you want to do this every time, you can simply create a shortcut that will start the Internet Explorer in Kiosk mode.

    There are no menu's and all commands need to be entered though keystrokes (eg Ctrl-O to open)

    Right click on an open area of the desktop
    Select New / Shortcut
    For the Command enter "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" -k
    Give it any name you want

    Everyone seems to be making this far more difficult than it really is......

    Open IE
    Drag the whole window to the upper left corner of the screen
    Move your cursor down to the lower right of the window, where it will change into a double-headed arrow.
    Press and hold the shift key.
    Left-click the double headed arrow and drag it to the lower right corner of the screen.
    Release the mouse button
    Release the Shift key.
    Close the window.
    Open IE again............It will open full sized.

    This works with any window (not just IE) that is re-sizable. Some are not.

    Sorry about misreading the original post and thinking you wanted Full Screen or Kiosk mode.

    The maximizer software works great. Otherwise to have IE start maximized, try resizing the window the way you want. The close it by holding down the control key while you click on the X
