Q: Automatically open IE 8 in full screen.

Original title:Full screen

How do I get Windows 7 to automatically open in full screen using Internet Exployer 8




Programs like Internet Explorer (IE) will open to the same size as they were when they were closed.

Step 1: If you want Internet Explorer to open full-size when you start it up:

a.     You must first start IE, and then maximize the window.

b.     Now click File, and then Close.

c.     Now restart IE, and it should start up in a full-sized window.


Step 2:

a.     Close all the Internet Explorer window.

b.     Right click on the IE icon/shortcut placed on the quick launch toolbar/desktop/start menu,

c.     Select Properties and then change Run->Normal Window to Run->Maximized.

Thereafter, any time you click the IE quick-launch icon or the shortcut icon, IE will open in full screen.
