My problem is this.

1. I am in IE
2. Right click on link
3. Select Open in New Window
4. A new window is opened and resides on the task bar
5. Left click the new window in the task bar and it does not maximize. Instead, I see it try to maximize and then disappear into the middle of the screen. I can then right click on it and choose Maximize and it works.

Any thoughts on why this is happening and how to fix it? I have run Ad-Aware for spyware and no problems.

Thanks.
Patrick

To open Internet Explorer in a maximised window

For the initial window:

Right click on the Internet Explorer icon on your taskbar and click Properties
In the Run field, choose the maximized option.
Click Apply then ok.

To maximize new windows:

In the existing Internet Explorer Window,

Right click on a link and click open in New Window
After you have opened the new window, close the original (and any other IE windows except the new one).
Resize the new window (drag the edges) to the largest possible size, then close that window.
Now reload IE and try opening a new window

The "ResetWindowPlacement.reg" file, which you can download here may fix the problem. The link to the download and instructions on how the file is used are about halfway down the page under the heading, "Opening Internet Explorer Full Size."
