I'm using Windows XP, SP2 with IE 7.0. and I don't know if this is an operating system problem or an IE one. When I open a web site the page opens in the smallest scale possible, about 7 inches wide and one inch high. I can resize this manually and that works and I can click the full page square in the upper right corner and that works or I can hit Full Screen from the view menu and that works too. But when I exit the web page and reopen I have to do the same thing all over. Its like the page size defaults back to the minimal size. This nuisance problem just started recently after I deleted a bunch of bloatware on my computer.
However, if I open a file with any of my application software(MS Ofice, Adobe PDF, or JPEG's etc) this problem does not occur. Whatever the page size is on my screen when I exit is what appears on the next file when I open a file. And thats the way the web pages behaved before too but not anymore.

Move your mouse pointer slowly back and forth on the corners and edges of the window until it turns into a double ended arrow > left click and hold and drag the window to a full screen > close all other windows and then close the window that you re-sized ( the trick is to close the re-sized window last ). The next time it should open maximum size.

Thanks for the tip Mark. Tried this several times but to no avail. It (the screen) still comes up minimal. I'm thinking something must have gotten tweeked in the registry but I wouldn't know what to look for.

Try it again, but make sure you close the window using the File menu option. If you use the X icon on the window, it won't work.

Thank you plenty. Closing from the file menu did the trick.
