After changing the window size in explorer it always opens to that size now. What I want is explorer to open maximized all the time. I tried to manually rezise the borders but next time I open explorer again it opens in the old size again. Any ideas? Thanks

Hi!

Resize (with only one window open) and then close by clicking the X in the upper right corner while holding down the Shift key. Often this works but it may not.

If it doesn't try this:

1. Open a single IE window
2. Now open a secondary IE window by either right-clicking or shift-clicking
on any convenient link in the open IE window
3. Resize this second window to the desired dimensions
4. Close this resized window by clicking the X in the upper right corner while holding down the Shift key
5. Resize the still open original window as desired
6. Close this window by clicking the X in the upper right corner while holding down the Shift key

Great Blam, your second option worked, now all explorer links open maximised. Thank you
