Hi friends,

At the moment, every time I open Internet Explorer, and then maximize the windows, then close Internet Explorer. The next time I run Internet Explorer it starts maximized :(

I would like my Internet Explorer windows to open in a certain position and at a certain size EVERY time I open it.

Thanks,

Lee.

Thanks anyway but I don't mean that! :)

Ok here goes...

I open IE and resize the windows to around 400 x 400 pixels in size.
I then close IE.

Next....

I open IE again and it opens at 400 x 400 pixels in size.
I resize the window to 600 x 600 pixels.
I then close IE.

Next...

I open IE and it opens automatically at 600 x 600 pixels!!! (IE has automatically REMEMBERED the last size of its window when it was last closed)

Therefore, no matter what I resize the IE windows to, 430 x 800, 800 x 605, and then close IE. The NEXT time I open IE I want it to open at 400 x 400 every time.

Hope thats clearer :)

Any ideas?

Lee.

copy this to your home page link
Tools / Internet Options

you can customize this however you like, I set it up to center on the screen....if you change the window size divide the size by 2 and change the width and height locations accordingly.

you can add your own homepage link...just edit the 'about:blank' and add your own
for example    'http://www.google.com'    single quotes only

copy here:

javascript:resizeTo(400,400); moveTo(screen.width/2-200,screen.height/2-200);document.location.href='about:blank'
