Hi there,

This has bugged me for sometime now and it would be good if I could fix it... IE8 and IE9 all open a link in a new window and its not maximised... if I drag the corners to the ends of the screen it has no effect. I also went into the registry to force it to open as "full screen" HKCU\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\Internet Explorer\MAIN\fullscreen and set that to "yes"... so it gave me a "full screen" with no menu etc.

Is there a way to click on a link and simply have it open a new window in a full screen?

Kind Regards
Simon

When you drag to resize the window it has to be the only window open.
Did you try opening IE9 then opening a link in that window, then closing all the other windows, then resizing and closing the last window while holding down the left shift key?
