How do I get IE9 to open in full window from a shortcut or link?

sgb422 asked on
I can't find a way to get IE9 to open in full window mode from a shortcut. It opens in full window mode from the icon on the task bar or Program menu, but not from a shortcut. I maximize the window and close, but the next time it again will not open full window.

Try this:
Open a webpage. Stretch it out to fullsize. Don't use maximize.
Choose any link on that webpage and right-click> open in a new window.
Stretch that second window out to the desired size- don't use maximize.
Close the first IE window. Then close that second resized window.

To always get a true maximized window use
AutoSizer - http://www.southbaypc.com/AutoSizer/
