I have Windows 98 re-installed.  I am getting
a very irrtating problem (not serious,I agree).
When I open anyhing within OE5 it comes
up in a small box.  I have to maximaise
everything from reading messages to creating new ones.
I have tried looking for the maximise window check box in IE Options/Advanced.
Can anyone help?

Regards

What you can do is right click on your short-cut for IE 5.0
select properties, and short-cut tab
then in the run menu select maximized.....

Hope this helps you

If you have a short-cut for IE on the desktop then
right click on it.....go into properties
there should be two tabs (or more there)
general and then one beside it that says short-cut
in that tab there is a runn menu where you can select to run as
maximized

Hope this helps

I right mouse click the IE shortcut bar and select properties.
The following tabs can be see:
general
security
content
connections
programs
advanced
Perhaps you mean the advanced tab which should have a maximise tab.  However it is not there.  It may be significant to note that I have the IE501 version.
Can you advise me further?
Thank you for your patience.

Regards

The IE icon that you clicked is not a shortcut icon.
To create a shoutcut icon you can right mouse click the IE shoutcut bar and select create new shortcut command (hotkey is 'S'). Soon you will see a real IE short-cut icon with a small arrow at the left bottom of the icon and including word "shortcut" in icon's name.
If you right mouse click the the IE short-cut icon and select properties again, you will see the shortcut tab. Then you can select maximized in the run menu.
Good Luck ...

OE5 or less has no maximize window for reading messages,
only for the app itself.
OE remembers the window size when you close it, and will reopen at that size window.

When you have OE open, click the maximize box in top right of window for full screen,
and close with the X box when done.
Next time you open it, it will reopen at full screen.

For messages,
with window open, use the double arrow
expanding tool at corner of window to make window as large as you want.Move window to adjust to your liking.
use X box to close.
Next message will open at the new size.

This doesn't work.  I have already tried this Centerv.  There has got to be a registry tweak out there which controls how the OE5 message is controlled.  Thankyou so very much to those experts who have tried to assist.  
What else ca I try?
