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".

    I,am new to computers i would like to know how to email

    The 1st step in doing an email is that you go to a website that provides email service usually these services are free of cost.
    There are many websites on the internet that provide these services for free or for a nominal price. I am mentioning the most premiere services on the internet.
    (1)Yahoo mail! (2) Gmail and (3) Hotmail
    Lets suppose you want to use email from yahoo. click the following web link or copy paste it into your browser.

    On the opening page on the top left corner you will an icon in the shape of an envelope saying mail click that icon. The opening page will have two phrases "Sign In" and "Sign Up". Click Sign Up and you will directed to a page where you will have to feed in your private information in order to create an email account. Once you fill up the form, which is very easy I suggest that you note down the email user name and the password you choose before clicking the "submit" button. After the form is accepted. Go to the following URL

    On the opening page give the noted User name and password and click Sign In your email page will open. On the upper left corner click "NEW" an interface will open where you give the email address of the persons you want to send to in the field next to tab that says " To". If there is someone you also want to inform regarding the subject of the email. You can use the empty field with the tab that says "CC". Put the subject or the topic of your mail
    and fill the empty box can be used to construct the body of the email. When you finish typing your email click the "Send" button the top. your email will definitely be sent.

    Good Luck!
