View Full Version : STUMPED!!! IE window reduced

I'm stumped. I don't know how or when it happened. Sometime this week my IE6 suddenly cannot open a link in full window.

1. Start IE6 goto home page.
2. At home page, right click on a link to open in new window.
3. New IE6 window open on screen but just the blue titlebar (note - its not minimised to taskbar). The content are hidden unless I find the bottom right corner of the 'object' and drag/resign it to full window (or click on the maximise icon which is left of 'X').

I think it started happening when I install the no-advert thingy from this month's PCWorld. I found it didn't stop pop ups so I uninstall it. I think that when the problem started.

I've searched everywhere in IE6 and I can't find a setting which says open links in minimised window!!!!

Des, not sure quite what you are getting at but might offer this silly suggestion.

Mine was playing up, every new window was microscopic. So, I maximised it (only copy open), then Dragged it in a tiny little bit, then did the Max, Min thing with the button and it hardly shifted. Closed IE, started up again, fine. Everything back to normal. Was a real pain, so easily fixed.

Best method that I have found is - right click bottom task bar - then click both Tile H & V. Then when opening in new window it is always full size. Do the above after opening new window. Hope it makes sense.
