This is my first post.
I consider myself a beginner because after using my first-ever computer for four years I, all too often, feel like one.
I have posted about my difficulty in another forum to which I belong. One response on that forum, and only one, seemed to offer a solution. I will copy the substance of that response here:
"solved?... errr, here's a tip, move mouse pointer to very edge of each edge in thw window and pull them to the size you want, then hold shift key down while you close it via 'x' in upper right... when you open it, it should open maximised... works in IE and XP regular subfolder windows anyways".
I have several desktop short-cuts to folders in different partitions on my HDD. I wish them all to open full screen or close.
The tip (above) worked for a period of 24hrs. (approx). These folders then reverted to opening, each in the same way, to a much smaller size.
I guess I am a maintenance 'freak'. And on a daily, even hourly, basis. I set one of the folders to the near full screen size, I then did every item of maintenance I could think of, checking after each to see if that particular folder had reverted to the small window size. It had not. But it will - eventually.
My O/S is the result of a format/install a few days ago. It is fully updated (critically). I use I.E.6.
Some of my freeware. AVG. Spybot. SpywareBlaster. Lavasoft. HijackThis. jv16pt. RegSeeker. Delindex. ScanDefrag. StartUpCPL and Monitor.
Help much appreciated.
