How do I maximize IE 7 pages from Shortcuts?
 
Now this is a real brain-lapse for me....lol. How do I maximize my IE7 window upon opening. When ever I click a link or a shortcut it opens minimized everytime except: when I open my home page from the desktop or quick launch....The location of the setting has escaped me in my older age....LMAO

How to maximize IE window upon opening
 
You can try this...

1. Open you IE from desktop and maximize it.
2. Hold the "Ctrl" key and close IE.

Try opening IE from the link should open maximized IE window.

Hey Tanks Sami,

I had to do alittle experimenting though. I tried maximizing then close with cntl button pushed but it didn't work. What I found that worked was to maxmize with the control button pushed then keep it pushed and close. Thank alot......

Loss of settings controls...
 
More and more, XP with age, starts to lose its teeth... ;) I can no longer maintain my folder settings re: appearance in a window... "Folder Options" And its no use trying to advise... I've spent months on this issue, along with minds far greater than my own ;) On my system, it can't be done...period...!

My XP is falling apart. Almost monthly, something, does not work any longer. I call it "code fatigue," ...you know, it is like the face on a digital clock or watch, when the numbers end up looking like ancient Viking Runes ;)

Some if it can be ignored, some if it can be repaired.

One method, that is batted around on the net, is to untick the Restore function in System Restore, and then do a CrapCleaner, or Windows System Cleanup ...that is supposed to kill any Restore Points lurking about... Then while it is not looking, reset what ever functions need to be corrected or changed. Then create a new Restore Point... This has worked in some instances only.

Let us know if you come up with another solution, or someone else has any ideas...
