Hi,

Please let us know the version of Internet Explorer you are using. If you are using IE7, kindly download and install IE8.

To resolve this problem, kindly reset the Internet Explorer to the default settings. To do this, click on the Tools link in the Internet Explorer window, then select Internet Options, then click on the Advanced tab and click on Reset button. Follow the prompts in the dialog box which opens and close the window by clicking OK.

Another step (which I think you already tried) is to right-click on the Internet Explorer shortcut icon on the desktop, then select Properties, then click on Shortcut tab and then in the drop-down menu next to Run, select Normal Window and click OK.

Also, for Registry settings related to this problem, kindly read the help article by clicking here and follow the instructions under item number 8 (Internet Explorer opens off screen, or tiny, or minimized, or the window will not move)

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa

    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".

    Tip

    Create a shortcut key for Internet web pages


    Create a PC shortcut key to a favorite web page by following the below steps.

    Internet Explorer users

    Users using Internet Explorer can quickly do this by right-clicking on an empty spot of a web page and click 'Create Shortcut'.

    Other Internet browser users

    If your browser window is maximized make it a window. Once done click and drag the icon next to the URL and drag it to your desktop or other location you wish to create the shortcut.

    After shortcut has been created

    Once the shortcut has been created locate the shortcut and right-click it and click Properties. In the shortcut properties assign a new shortcut key and click OK. Now when the shortcut key is pressed the web page will be automatically loaded.

    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

    Google Chrome removal


    right click on any internet shortcut icon -> select properties and to the right of where it says Opens with: click "Change"

    Now you'll be given a list of recommended applications

    If you were using firefox it will probably be right there just click it then click "ok"
    if the application you used before isn't there click "Browse"

    If you want to use Internet Explorer just go to: My Computer -> C:\
    -> Program Files then find the folder called Internet explorer, inside you'll find iexplore click it then click open

    let me know if that worked ok for you

    Internet explorer cannot be found...


    Check if you maybe have some IP and DNS settings to your WL network adapter:

    Control panel
    Network connections
    Right to your WL adapter and click Properties
    On the end of the list in the middle you'll find:
    Internet protocol (TCP/IP)

    Double-click it and set IP and DNS to Automatically. . . .
    (OK, and than, again OK).

    Check Internet Explorer settings:
    Control panel
    Internet Options
    Click on Security Tab
    Set ALL zones to DEFAULT
    Click Apply and OK

    SHORTCUT TAB


    Hi sadiebay. It was not my solution for your initial post, but I think I can explain why you can not find the shortcut tab.

    Because Internet Explorer is a Microsoft program integrated into XP, it is considered a 'Desktop Icon' item. The shortcut you are trying to find the properties tag for was probably put on the desktop using the Show Desktop Items routine in the Display Properties routine. It will not have the same right-click options available as a regular shortcut icon placed on your desktop.

    The solution is to go to your Start Button->All Programs and right click on the Internet Explorer icon in the program list, then Send To Desktop. You will get another icon that looks the same, but you should notice that the new one has the small shortcut arrow on the 'E' where the old one doesn't. Now when you right click on the new icon (the one with the arrow) you get Properties as the last option, and within the Properties tab you should see Run with a drop down box next to it, in which you can select Maximized. Delete the old icon (right-click and delete, doesn't hurt anything) and put the new one in its place to keep your desktop set as you are used to it.
