    When I open IE8 from the IE icon the full window opens up. But if I click on
    any web link, either in Outlook Express or on any website, the new window
    which opens up is only 1/3rd. Its a pain to every single time maximise the
    window. I tried stretching the sides to full size, then closing all windows,
    with IE last but it does not help. Can anyone help please. Thank u.

  2. That's the best you can do then. Alternatives to stretching the window
    are: using a Tile... command (on one window) or having a script in your
    Favorites Bar (aka LInks bar) which can resize the current window.

    Here's one that has been floating around for years, with just an arbitrary
    position and size. Modify as desired:

    javascript:resizeTo(900,700);window.moveTo(75,1)
