since i had to uninstall xp due to compatability problems i have gone back to windows ME. but whenever i use ie 5.5 and i click on any links the new window always opens in a seperate window
and it is minimized, which on the face of it may not seem that bad
but after five weeks its getting on my nerves.

footnote: i have tried all the things i can think of like checking ie settings.

Have you tried opening IE selecting Tools, Internet Options, Advanced tab, and clicking the Restore Default button?

When the second window opens, close the first and then grab the sides of the second and drag it to the size that you want. Dont use maiximize. Then close it. It should come back maximized. The idea is to bypass the restore. It is possible to set the main window in IE to open as you want but there isnt anyway to set the the others.
