Got a funny problem that started tonight.
If I open IE Exp from the task-bar it opens normaly, however if I R/click on an object and then click "open in new window" the new window opens up reduced in size.
I had this happen a cpl of years ago but I forget how I fixed it.
Thanks, Doug

IE may of lost its sizing parameters for new window. Try this a couple of times. Open window as you did and drag it to the size you wish it to be opened in. Do not use the maximize button up top!
After window is resized to your liking then hold the Control key down and click the closing window "X" in upper right corner.
Reopen window same way you did before and repeat.

Let us know if that helps.

Hi ozdoug... Do as davey7549 suggested, except this time after you have opened the new window, close the original window. Then resize the window the way you like and close with the "X" while holding down the Ctrl key. Reopen IE and try another new window.
