starting internet explorer

Frequently when I start up my Internet Explorer the page comes up reduced in size.
OK, it isn't a big problem to maximize the page but I would like to know how to ensure the page comes up at full size autamatically every time.
Can any of you experts put me straightHuh?

Re: starting internet explorer

You don't say which version of IE or which OS, but this might be worth trying anyway:
1. Open IE
2. Maximise or drag to full-screen size
3.. Whilst holding the Shift key (*) down, close IE via the 'X' at top right.
4. Re-open IE.
(*) I think it's the Shift key (a long time since I had to do this, and I hardly ever use IE anyway). If not, it's Ctrl

Re: starting internet explorer

Thanks Judge.
Tried what you suggested, both ways, (using shift and ctrl) but the page still comes up half size.
Any more ideasHuh?
I'm using Internet Explorer 7.0.5730.13

Re: starting internet explorer

Try "maximise" to full screen, then just shut down/restart...... without "closing" IE....

Re: starting internet explorer

I presume you've checked that the properties of the shortcut you are using to start IE has Run set as maximised.

Re: starting internet explorer

If this query was about Firefox I'd go to the Mozilla Firefox official forum and ask the question. Does IE have a similar forum?
