    I know what your talking about. Its when you boot IE up, and its not maxamized. This bugs the crap out of me too, anyone know how to fix it, so when you startup the browser or open into a new window the window is automatically maxamized?

    Thanks ;)

    You can edit the shortcut properties to open the window maximized.

    I think it remembers its last position and size from when it was last closed. At least it does on my system.

    yeah, if you extnend it out then close it with the X in XP then the next time you open it it defaults to that position. Don't know about Maximized though.

    I guess when you said "post" and combined that with IE I got confused, because "post" can mean Power On Self Test, which your computer does on boot. And you also said "booting" which further added to my confusion.
    Maybe something like "my IE windows open in a position I don't like" or something :)
