New window opens small (IE5.5)

I know this is a simple one, and I think I've even seen the solution here before but it's bugging me.

So, sorry if it's been here before....

When I open a new window from one web page to another, it opens small. How do I stop this happening and make the new window open full size?

Try this.

1.Close all instances of Internet Explorer
2.Start the Registry Editor
3.Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Internet Explorer \ Main
4.Delete the value Window_Placement
5.Exit the Registry Editor

If your talking about windows being opened by clicking hyperlinks, this may not work.

They need to be resized manually:

Start IE5, right click any URL and select Open in a New Window.
Go back to the first IE5 window you opened and close it.
Return to the second window and manually drag it to fill the screen.
(Do not use the maximize button)
Close this second window, using the close box.
All windows should now open maximized.
And the trick is NOT to use the maximize button, for that's a temporary setting which will not be remembered.

Good luck,
