  1. Yesterday when I would open a second window, it would open in the full size. Today, it opens in the downsize (slightly smaller size). For instance, when on the TechSpot home page and clicking on the Forums at the top of the page, the new window is smaller. Guess I've done something to cause this but I don't know what. I've looked at "Tools, Internet Options", but don't see anything that would apply to my problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    for a really simple solution try using avant browser. it is free and uses a tabbed interface so all windows stay the same size plus it has a pop up blocker that really works.

    I don't know specifically what in this process fixes it but if you open a browser window in IE, then click on a link that brings up a new one and its smaller, drag the window to make it bigger (that thing in the bottom right of the window), then close it. note: maximizing will not work. Next time it should make it the size you made it in the previous step when you click on a link that makes a new window.

    Thanks SNGX, that solved my problem. Sure was a simple fix.

    Yeah, IE apparently remembers where and how big your windows are. Same happens with me.
