I am using the following code to open a browser window full size:
ShellExecute(0,'Open', PChar'http://google.com'), nil, nil, SW_SHOWNORMAL);

I only want to have the browser cover half (or part) of the screen.  What code can I use to do this?

I am using Delphi 6.  Your help greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Find browsers window handle with FindWindow
http://www.delphipages.com/forum/showthread.php?t=137431
....and set size/position with SetWindowPos:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms633545%28v=vs.85%29.aspx
SetWindowPos(WBhandle,HWND_BOTTOM,Left,Top,Width,Height,SWP_SHOWWINDOW);

Open in new window

But, because it is hard to find right window I suggest to use approach used here:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13796063/how-to-get-handle-of-a-console-window-launched-from-my-gui-application
... a goal is to run browser different way, get process id and find main window from that proc. id.
