Internet Explorer opens in screen a fraction of potential size, i.e. it opens in a window about one

When I open IE or a url link it opens with a desktop viewing area about one
third the size of my screen/desktop.
What can I do to correct this annoying problem?

Resize the IE window.


Any window you want to resize permanently must be the last window closed.
This includes having no other windows minimized to the Taskbar.


Grab the corners of the window and drag it to full screen size. Do not use
Maximize. Close all other windows first via the Taskbar and this one last.
Windows will remember the size used of the last window closed the next time
you open the program.

Bruce Hagen's solution sounds the best (i. e. set the size you want then
make sure that's the last IE window you close).

Or use another browser (-: [where the answer will I guess depend on
which you choose].

You might consider setting up a different .sig for news posts.

At the risk of being facetious, is there any reason why you want to
make Internet Explorer work instead of just using a better browser?

And by "better", I mean without the designed-in security nightmare
that is ActiveX.
