    When clicking links that open new windows, it seems that they're stuck
    opening very small windows. I drag the corner to resize, then close
    afterwards, but when clicking another link, the new windows opens very small
    again. Keeps happening.

    Hi,
    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

    Wow. I must have a unique problem, because merging that .reg file didn't
    work either. Any more suggestions?

    Hi,
    I'm surprised that this didn't work:Did you close the windows in the order that they were opened?

    Did you get a "succeeded" message after merging the REG file?

    Yes, I closed the original window first, then the 'stretched' window last.
    And yes, I did get a message letting me know that the .reg merge had
    succeeded. In case I didn't mention, I'm using IE7, rc1. There is an option
    in IE7 rc1, to 'Reset Internet Explorer settings', which deletes all temp
    files, disables browser add-ons and resets all the changed settings, but it
    says it should only be used if the browser is in an unusable state. I would
    try it, but am afraid it would wipe out all of my stored passwords too.
    What do you think?
