    This is a rather silly question but here goes. I am running win2k service pack 2 and IE 6.
    When I right click a link then click “Open in new window”, the window opens rather small. I then have to enlarge the window. My question is how can I get IE to open a new link in a full size window? When I open a link from favorites, it opens in a full window, it’s just when right clicking that the problem comes up. I have looked at settings and tried windows help I cannot seem to find any reference to this.

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    Hiya

    First off, try opening the window using the link. Then, don't maximise it, but drag the window to the size you want. Close all windows that are open and try again.

    If not, have a go with this:

    1.Close all instances of Internet Explorer
    2.Start the Registry Editor (start--run--regedit)
    3.Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Internet Explorer \ Main
    4.Delete the value Window_Placement
    5.Exit the Registry Editor


    Regards

    Thanks I deleted all of the plug ins and active x controls and that fixed the problem.

    Thanks, again
