    I don't think this is limited to my IE6 browser, but all my pages open and cover only part of my screen and I have to maximize them every time.

    I'm kind of tired of having to "maximize" everything every time a page is displayed(and I can't think of any times when I'll want them to open in reduced size).

    Is there a way to make everything Always open in full-screen mode?

    thanks

    Try this,

    Open IE, right click any link on a web page, select Open in a New Window.

    Go back to the first IE window you opened and close it.

    These are important,

    Return to the second window and manually drag it to fill the screen.

    Now press the Ctrl button, and close this second window, holding the Ctrl button depressed, using 'close' in the File menu.

    Check again!

    thanks, Pvc9

    that seems to work well. I don't know why windows started opening up reduced....it just seems to happen one day.

    I'll remember your tip when it starts happening again.

    thanks
