How to stop browser auto resize when debugging in Visual Studio

Posted on 2006-06-05

When I click the Start Debugging or the Start without debugging options in Visual Studio, either a new browser window is opened or the previously used browser is brought to the forefront.  No matter what state the browser was in before I clicked the button (minimized, maximized, etc), the browser is automatically resized and displayed on the screen.

Has anyone seen a way to stop Visual Studio from resizing the browser?  Or even better, tell it to fully maximize the browser when starting the application?  It's very annoying to keep resizing the browser everytime I click either of those buttons.

Thanks in advance!

    right click on the webform and select "Browse With.."  In the popup dialog, select the browser and select the screen size.  Now this will be your default setting. running with this setting will let you do the trick.
