    Hi and welcome. Are you speaking of Intenet Explorer Browser window not being full screen? If so, with only one window open, hit the middle button to expand it (upper right hand corner) then X it and close it, then reopen another one, it should open full.

    Never had to change a registry key for that ;)

    on the second window, drag it to full screen, then close that one, and reopen another one.

    Are you talking about the size that the windows open up with?
    (I think that may be poor english!)

    Try this: Open up a window... say in IE. Drag it out to what you want - Hold Ctrl and click X to close it

    Now open another window and it should default to that size. If you want it maximized upon opening - then do the same thing again - hit the MAXIMIZE button - Hold Ctrl and close it. I SHOULD open up MAXIMIZED !
