    When it opens in this small box, hold and drag the corners to a maximized position.

    Then, when IE fills the entire screen Close and restart IE

    It still opens in Restore size, but at least it covers the entire screen.

    Windows has been made to remember your folder and programs sizes and positions (for your benefit - lol)
    Therefore you'll will need to adjust as you go along :) you'll eventually have most of the common ones where you want them.

    This includes TaskManager. You'll know whenever someone has viewed TaskManager or not, because its default (restored) location is top left. Try Ctrl+Alt+Del to see where yours is. You can also drag the top toolbar (usually blue bar) on any folder to where you want it to be normally too.
