Web sites do not open maximized anymore

    I just installed IE7 on my 2nd and 3rd laptop. Now when I open a web site from the home page, one of them opens approx. half page.
    I have to click the maximize button every time to make it full sized. Stretching the borders does not help. After closing the
    page, it opens half page again. Any suggestions appreciated. TIA.

    Win XP SP2 with all critical updates
    IE7 newly installed

    Hi,
    The usual fix for this is to open and resize two windows, then close them in
    order.

    Try this...
    Open a webpage. Stretch it out to fullsize. Don't use maximize.
    Choose any link on that webpage and right-click> open in a new window.
    Stretch that second window out to the desired size- don't use maximize.
    Close the first IE window. Then close that second resized window.

    To always get a true maximized window...
    AutoSizer 1.4- http://www.southbaypc.com/AutoSizer/
    IE New Window Maximizer http://www.jiisoft.com/iemaximizer/index.htm
