Opening new windows

How do you get new windows to fully open. For some reason new windows started opening up only about 4" wide. The length is the full size of the monitor but width is driving me crazy. I have to click on the maximize button to open all the way. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi:

Try opening the failing window, maximizing it and then close it using ALT/F4. See if it opens maximized after doing that.

Try this workaround (the article says it's for IE5 but it works for IE6, as well):

Re: Opening new windows

This makes the window "full screen". What I want is to just have the window fully open to normal size when I click on a link.

If you haven't installed IE6 SP1, please get it from www.windowsupdate.com or http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/downloads/critical/ie6sp1/default.asp

Re: Opening new windows

Got it, installed it, still no change. Windows still open up as stated before.
