Postby freepims » Thu Aug 05, 2010 7:29 pm

Tried a couple of things but don't seem to work, I E 8 will not open all the time in maximized mode, tried holding ctrl and closing then reopen, tried right clicking on icon and check open maximized, but when it feels like it just barely opens

Reset Internet Explorer 8

Note: the following steps will remove all of installed add-ons and reset IE to default settings. We need to reinstall the add-ons after resetting.

1. Click "Start", type "inetcpl.cpl" (without quotation marks) into “Search” bar and press "Enter" to open the “Internet Options” window.

2. Switch to the "Advanced" tab.

3. Click "Reset…" to reset Internet Explorer settings.

4. Check "Delete personal settings" box and click "Reset" to confirm the operation.

5. Click "Close" when the resetting process is complete.

6. Click “Restore advanced settings” button and click “OK”.

7. Close the Internet Explorer window and restart IE to check the issue.

Note your computer screen resolution and follow the below steps:

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 Custom option and enter your screen resolution exactly.
4. Close the Internet explorer and reopen it to get the maximized windows.
