IE7 started opening up in smaller window when I click a new link

Posted: 01-24-2009, 10:40 PM
Recently, I resized two IE 7 windows side by side to compare some info. After
closing, when ever I clink on a link in IE 7, the new window opens up in the
size I had when I had two small windows side by side. IE 7 opens up normally
when starting out, but if I click on a link in a webpage, forum, etc., I get
the smaller window.

I've tried resizing and closing using the Cntrl key, and even using the
Shift key when closing. So far nothing seems to work.

Thank you,
Pat

See if this helps.

Launch IE7 and click on a link to bring up the smaller window.
Close the original instance of IE7.
Move your mouse pointer to one of the corners of the window.
When it turns into a double headed arrow, hold down the left mouse button
and drag the toward the corner of your monitor.
Do this until the window is the size you want.
Close this window and relaunch IE7.
Click on a link and see what size window is displayed.

If that doesn't fix the problem you might want to post your question to the
Internet Explorer newsgroup.
