How to set Internet Explorer 8 to open in maximized window always?


I saw most of the people were asking for the option to maximize all Internet explorer windows size. There are some tricks which might work only for some windows but not for all the Internet Explorer windows. As I am working as a technical support, I found an option to set all Internet Explorer Windows maximized.

I will provide you the steps to set this potion, please try this and let me know if this worked for you.

1. Open Internet Explorer and press F12 to open Developers tools windows for Internet explorer.

2. Click on Tools and select Resize.

3. Select the maximum screen resolution size you have.

4. Close the Internet explorer and reopen it to get the maximized windows.
From now you will be able to open any Internet explorer windows in maximized size even though if you open a link right clicking on it and select "Open in a new window".

How to Restore Disabled Folder Pane in Windows Explorer


Problem:
When you open Windows Explorer, the left hand Folders pane is disabled or gray or blank and the folder tree on left is not available.

Cause:
There may be an error in the registry. A required system file is missing or an incorrect version.

Solutions:
Close Windows Explorer.
Start the Registry Editor (click Start, Run, type regedit and click OK).

Expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main.
In the right-hand pane, locate the value named ExplorerBar. If present, delete it.
Restart Windows Explorer. If this does not resolve the issue,
The correct solution depends on the version of Internet Explorer that is installed on the computer.Internet Explorer 5.5 or lower
The preferred solution for computers with Internet Explorer 5.5 or lower is to upgrade to the latest version of Internet Explorer.
If this is not possible:
Open the folder C:\Windows\System. Check that the file browseui.dll is present. If it is not present, restore this file.
Internet Explorer 6
Open the folder C:\Windows\System. Check that the file shdocvw.dll is present. If it is not present, restore this file.
Open a command prompt.
Enter the command cd \Windows\System
Verify that the command prompt shows C:\Windows\System.

Enter the command regsvr32 /i shdocvw.dll.
Enter the command regsvr32 /i browseui.dll.

A message will appear confirming the successful registration of the files.

Now restart the sytem and confirm the problem is solved.

I accidentally deleted the internet explorer icon shortcut; how do i get it back?


Assume you are using Windows XP..
Go to My Computer >C Drive (your hard drive icon)>open programmes, find the Internet explorer folder, open it and right click on the "iexplore" icon and create shortcut..it will then prompt you to place the shortcut on the desktop..windows Vista is virtually the same

Explorer problem


Hi

I suggest to restore the settings of your internet explorer to defaults. There could be bugs during your windows update.

1. Open internet explorer, go to tool --> Internet Options ---> Advanced tab ---> Reset.

Reset all the settings then restart your computer. In case you cannot open internet explorer because it will just give you a white blank page. try the following steps below.

1.1a Click Start -- type msconfig on start search box (for vista only). Click Run (for xp only). a pop up box window will show up (System utility configuration). Look for the tab Services.

Under services tab, put a check on the box that says "Hide all microsoft services" at the very bottom screen. Click apply then close. Restart the computer.

After restarting the computer follow step 1.

Keep me posted

Regards

Problems with computer software


First use a friends computer download firefox. Firfox is a another/better broswer that internet explorer.

http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/?from=getfirefox

Second once firefox is installed download adaware found here --->

http://www.lavasoft.com/products/ad_aware_free.php (make sure you get the free version)

run it on a complete scan.

Next after that get malwarebytes ---->

http://www.malwarebytes.org/ (update it before using it)

I am on the track that you have either spyware or a virus but most likely spyware.


for Internet explorer try this only after the above do not fix the problem.

Let me know if any of this works so we can try some other things.
