How do I change the size of my browser window permanently?
When I open an I.E. window, it is a reduced size.
I would like to know how you change the settings so that each time I open a browder window, it is the default full screen size.
I am running windows 2000, and am at a loss.
Pls help if you can.

I think IE remembers the last size of your window. So if the window that you cloed last was full screen than it should be full screen, if it was reduced then it will be reduced next time you open it. So open IE (one window) and then resize it to desired size, close it, and then open IE, this should have done it.

What I do with the quick launch is right-click on the ie icon click properties. Where it says Run: change the value to maximized. Click OK.20" iMac 2.16GHz / 1GB RAM / 250GB HDD / 8x DVDRW / OS 10.5

okay, I'm having this same problem too... Only those answers didn't fix my problem..
I have Windows 2000 Pro SP3 with IE6.
When I open IE6 it maximizes, which is fine. But whenever I click on ANY LINK that opens a new window, it makes this small tiny window that I have to manually maximize... It's just a stupid thing to complain about, but it's annoying!
I've tried resizing it and closing & restarting and using that maximize option in the IE properties but to no avail...

1) Open your primary IE window and grab the sides to stretch this window to fill your screen. Donít use the maximize button to do this. IF the window has already been maximized then click the size button in the upper right of your window (right next to the X button) so you can grab the sides.
2) Click on your link so that the secondary IE window opens up. Or just do a file/new/window.
3) Now, use the same technique to make the secondary IE window fill your screen (by grabbing the sides and stretching the window)
4) Close the primary IE window while leaving the secondary IE window open.
5) Now, close the secondary IE window.
This should work the next time you use IE. It has always fixed the problem for me.

GAH! No good.
Tried it several times and it keeps going to the stupid small window... Oh well, at least we tried.

Have you tried?
Uncheck the box that says "Reuse windows for launching shortcuts"
You should then be able to maximze a new window, close it, then next time a new window is opened, it should be maximized.

well... sorry it's been a few days, but haven't had my computer hooked up...
Tried the unchecking of the "reuse windows for launching shortcuts" thing, but it didn't work...
