    I have beginning Alzheimers and can't get it all together. I want to have
    all new windows opened in maximum style. Currently, they open in half
    screen. I can't think how to ask the question properly;

    Thanks

    Open a window and drag the edges to fill the screen as much as you
    want them to. *Without clicking on the 'Maximize' button, close the
    window by clicking on the 'X' in the upper right corner.* The next
    time you open a window it should have the dimensions you set.
    'Maximize' fills the screen but it doesn't forget settings that were
    manually made.

    By the way, I think you asked it very clearly and succinctly. Good
    luck.

    Hi,
    This won't open windows maximized or fullscreen but the windows should fill
    the screen.

    Open a webpage. Stretch it out to fullsize. Don't use maximize.
    Choose any link on that webpage and right-click> open in a new window.
    Stretch that second window out to the desired size- don't use maximize.
    Close the first IE window. Then close that second resized window.

    To always get a true maximized window, use one of these free programs...
    AutoSizer 1.4- http://www.southbaypc.com/AutoSizer/
    IE New Window Maximizer http://www.jiisoft.com/iemaximizer/index.htm

    If you right click on the program shortcut icon, click properties, then in
    the dropdown box next to Run select maximized. Click apply, click OK. Then
    when you open the program by double clicking on that shortcut icon, it will
    open maximized.

    Thanks but it only works on some links/pages. Even my Home page is half
    screen.

    Thanks, it works for the primary page but any links on the page appear in a
    1/2 box.

    Close all but one (1) of these smaller IE windows. "Grab" the corners of the
    remaining window with your cursor and "stretch" it to the desired size but
    do NOT maximize it! Now close the resized window.

    The resized window MUST be the last window closed in order for its size to
    be remembered.

    Or you can install IE New Window Maximizer and forget about it!
