Chrome should work like every other program and use the last opened settings.2019-04-22_2-25-57.gif click on picture to show .gif

I believe you. But it does not do that. I uninstalled chrome and reinstalled it and no luck. Do You Think Having EXTENSIONS can cause me to have all these problems.

The browser you are using is IE I believe or Edge. it is not Chrome.

Hi Basem,
Just wanted to check, does this happen only when opening Chrome links from Outlook? Will this happen when you open Chrome from your desktop?

Also, you mentioned a screen capture, could you provide that?

Thanks,
Martin

Ah I see, so when you open a link from Outlook, Chrome opens in windowed mode, not maximized.

Does this occur when you open Chrome  from other links? What if you opened Chrome from the Start Menu?

The reason I used Edge was I am currently actively using Chrome but the same principles apply.

When I opened Chrome from the start menu it opened maximized but the same thing also happens when I open a saved internet shortcut in a folder as stated in my original question.

Just to be sure.. when you open chrome normally it opens maximized.. if you then close chrome and select a link in outlook it opens minimized?  Is this correct?

Hi Basem,
It looks like your issue is a bug with the current version of Chrome that out Version 73.0.3683.103 (Official Build) (64-bit).

It appears to be resolved in the Chrome 74 build that is rolling out to users today. Please try updating your Chrome browser to see if it helps.

Hi Martin

i don't want to jinx myself but I think you may be right after all. there was a new update version 74. I did the update so far so good. Hopefully that problem would not return again. Thank you my friend. If you can please take a look at my Word shifting position question I would appreciate your help. Thank you Martin.
