you could change ur code to this instead of target = "_blank"

"window.open(this.href, 'popupwindow', 'width=set the size u want,height=set the size u want,scrollbars,resizable'); return false;"

hope it helps

Here is my code

<a href="outPrbDetAss_sp.htm" target="_blank">Open</a>

Is there any way to set it so that when I click the hyperlink, a maximized browser pops up all the time? (i mean via html alone without javascript)
hmm.. i dont really think u could just use html alone if you want to set/fix the browser size the moment the user clicks on the link

you could check this out very useful but its javascript

or some other made-up name. This spawns a new window that is the same as the default window size/location for that user (just as if the user started a new instance of the browser).

However, to guarantee that the window is maximised, you will have to use JavaScript.

It can't work....this is the code

 <a href="#" target="window.open('prbDet_rq.htm', 'popwin','width=500,height=400,status=yes,toolbar=no,menubar=no')">Open</a>

I think I have followed what you all recommend me but however i set the width and height it shows no effect.

<a href="#" onclick="window.open(this.href, 'popupwindow', 'width=500,height=400,status=yes,toolbar=no,menubar=no'); return false;">open</a>

I came across the same problem as yours.
Try this:
Put the following line in the HTML code of the pop up window at the start of the body section

<body onLoad="window.focus()">

This should help
