Have you ever clicked on a link, and Internet Explorer opens up full screen, or small and in a weird spot on your desktop?
It happens to me sometimes. The reason it happens is that you closed the window and left it at that particular size. Windows remembers that and the next time you open IE, it opens to the last saved size.
Here is a problem. If you open a saved link or favorite, it will open to the weird size, and you cannot change that permanently through that link.
The way you have to change this is to open IE to your home page, for example, click on the blue e just to open Internet Explorer. Once you do, size and place the window where you want it to be. Once you are done, click on the X, and it will save the size and position.
Now next time when you open a link or your home page, the window will be in the same place, same size that you last left it.
If you try to re-size, and close when you opened a link, and not just IE with your home page, it will not work. It will keep going back to that last saved size until you change it by opening IE from the Icon (like above). Then you can size, position and close, and your results will be saved.
I hope this helps those like me who like Windows they way they want Windows to look and act!
