Trying to help my father. He has SBC Yahoo DSL with their browser, but also has the same problem with IE 7.0. Every time he is on a web page and clicks on a link that opens in a new window or tab it opens up in a very small window. He then has to click on maximize or drag it open to get it full size. We tried dragging it open and then closing it hoping that it would save it but that didn't work. We also tried another suggestion to click on view then refresh the holding down ctrl while closing- same problem. It only happens when a link opens in a new window not when a link opens in the current window. He has a fairly new computer with XP.
Thanks, Kurt

Hi Kurt.
The click and drag to maximize thing usually works.
However, when you close the new window for the first time you must use File>Exit to close it, not the quick close X in the upper right hand corner. If that's what you're doing, have your father open a few hyperlinks in seperate windows, drag them full screen then close all the windows, including the original, via File>Exit from the toolbar. It "should" stick. If you've already used that method let us know. :thumbsup:
