[QUOTE=xtacydima;526731]Whenever I launch Windows explorer and resize it to take up full screen or a custom size (almost fullscreen), it always resumes a small window size upon next launch.
I have worked with Windows before and on numerous machines, and I happen to know that its supposed to remember its last Window Size and certain properties as such are supposed to retain and open the same way when launched again, even after reboot.
I really don’t wanna reinstall XP for a simple little bug like this.
Anyone know why this is happening or have a solution?
Perhaps a registry tweak?
I have experienced the same problem for over a year. A friend recommended the following fix (and it has worked for me).
Open a webpage using IE.
Click on a link in the webpage.
If the link does not open full/maximized, then drag it until it is maximized.
Then go back to the original webpage and close it.
Then close the page that you dragged to full view.
Now close the second page that you manually maximized.
Open IE again, then the website and then the same link.
This time the link should open maximized.
All future links should open in the full/maximized view.
Sorry about the non-technical explanation - I’m not a real computer technical guy. Just someone else who is constantly struggling with MS products:)
