  • Computer/IE question

    Let me start off by saying this is not a severe problem, just a very annoying one.

    Problem: browsing on IE and opening for example a link that would open up a new IE window. This used to open up as a full-sized window. Now opens as a little 1"x1" window, then needs to be maximized. Again, just annoying. I'm used to new IE windows opening at full size. This happened right after a pop-up from I believe GAIN publishing (maybe Gator.) I did click "no" (or so I think.)

    Is there a way to go back and fix the settings? I hope I explained this well enough. Thanks to all who answer.

    The next one that is "small", put your mouse on the side of it and "drag" it larger.
    And, frankly, it has never occured to me that "winning" a debate is important, or that I should be hurt when someone like Airshark or kah, among others (for whom winning a pseudo debate or declaring intellectual superiority over invisible others is obviously very important) ridicule me.

      I concur...you have to manually drag the window back to full size, rather than hitting the "maximize" button in the corner...
      . . . and to tell you this: I work with gays, have friends who are gay, go to church with gays. Most of them are aware that I believe that homosexual behavior is sin. Some of them actually agree. Most don't. It's OK . . . because they also know or at least have been made aware of my multitude of sins: adulterous heart, lustful and covetous behavior, wicked pride, angry spirit . . . do I need to go on?

        There is a way, I have read it before, but I cannot find it.

          I have had this problem before too, and eventually it seems to go away.

          The best solution in the meantime is to simply drag it to full size.

              The easiest way is to make sure the last IE window you closed is maximized.

              That then becomes the default view.

                Thanks to all that answered.

                The first time it happened I did drag the window to full size. But everytime I exit out of IE and get back in, the same problem starts again.

                Like I said, it is not a serious thing, just annoying. What I'm curious about is if some of these pop-ups from the likes of GAIN and Gator, or some programs you download can actually go and change settings like that.

                  GAIN is the devil of the Internet.

                  Get rid of it ASAP.

                      Forgot to add regarding 007's suggestion of Mozilla Firefox. I have it, along with Opera. But you know old habits are hard to break. I keep clicking on the IE icon every time I get on the internet.
