Open the IE8 and size the window to your liking. Then hold down the CTRL key while clicking the “X” to close the program. This will set the IE window to open at this setting every time. works for vista and w7

Try this. Expand the page using the two arrowed cursor on each side of the page so it fills the screen to your liking. Now press and hold the SHIFT key while clicking on the X, top right, to close.

OK. Try this. Open this page to it's "normal" small size and use the 'maximize' icon on top right. Once the page is full then right click the link at the bottom of this post and select open in a new window. Once the BBC window opens then hover your cursor over the IE icon in taskbar and select this page again. Once this page is showing then close it using the 'x' top right. Now do the same with the BBC page that is now showing. Hopefully when you open IE again it will open to a full page.
