Try: rightclick on the shortcut to IE | Properties | and in the button marked 'Run' on the dropdown menu alter the setting.

What exactly are you rightclicking on?

You should be rightclicking on the shortcut that you usually click on to open IE

Try this - open IE. Enlarge the window. Open a second version of IE. Enlarge that window. Close the first version, then close the second version.
