When I click on a link to bring up a new web page it comes up as a small sceen & I have to click on the icon in the top right hand corner to get it to full screen. This has only been occuring for a few days, it used to come up as a full screen directly. Could I have advise on what has caused the problem & how do I correct it. Note I am using XP

When the window opens in a small scree, move the mouse to a corner and you will see a small black cross, drag to full size.Now when you open a window it shoud remember the setting and open full size.

Managed to cure it on mine, which may work on yours, if you are using Bing as your homepage. I downloaded Windows Live Essentials, which sets Bing as the default browser. I don't know if it replaced the "Bing" I was using, but problem has disappeared.

Not sure if you've resolved the issue but you could try this, open IE then open a link. Go back to the first window and close. On the remaining window, drag sides to full screen. Close the window.

Rdave, You are wonderful!It worked, now why did I not think of that! Just shows you the power of Forums & the help people give to others in this world. It was only a small problem but very annoying. Wonder what caused it?

Internet Explorer has been around a long time perhaps it was having a 'senior moment' /:)
