    Please advise how I can open a webpage in the full screen mode. I have to click on the little boxes on the right hand corner to open to the full screen and I know there is a way to have the window opened fully without having to do this. Please advise. Yada :D

    Instead of maximizing the window, when it opens up,place the curser on the bottom right corner of the window,hold the left mouse button and drag the widow open to whatever size you want.The next time you open it , it will open to the size you chose.

    If you mean the first IE window you open, right click on the shortcut you use to open it, go to Properties and select "Maximized" in the Run drop-down list, click OK.

    If you're referring to secondary windows (open link in new window), then follow these steps:
    1. Open IE, go to a page with links
    2. Open a link in a new window
    3. Grab the corners/edges of the secondary window and drag it to the size and placement you want, do not use the maximize button
    4. Close the original window first - important step, don't overlook it!
    5. Close the window you just resized

    All future IE secondary windows will open using the size and placement of the window you closed in step 5.

    Or you could right click on an empty spot on your top toolbar, choose "customize" and look for the button that will say "full screen" in the left box. Add it to the right box. That button will be on your toolbar, then. When you want to view a page with full screen, just click that button. Click the button again to go back to the smaller screen with the full toolbar options.
