Hallo everybody,

since a few days all of a sudden when I click on a link for opening a new window this opens as a very small square and I must click on it for maximizing it. It is annoying because it's a waste of time, and because it's happening without me having changed anything. I have tried the various settings in Internet/tools/options, nothing changes. I have exactly the same settings and systems on the PC and on the laptop, but it happens only on the PC. Any suggestion? Thanks in advance

Resize the window manually Jan 23, 2004

by dragging at its border/corner and then close it.
Usually IE opens the next window in the same size.

Kind regards
Jerzy

Registry... Jan 23, 2004

Sorry, it is in German (www,winfaq.de):

Sollte der IE5 beim Öffnen eines neuen Fenster sich bei der Fenstergröße nicht an dem Standard orientieren (Vorgabe des letzten Fensters beim Schließen), kann man den Fehler in der Registry beheben.

Aufrufen von REGEDT32.EXE (NT/2000/XP)

unter:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Internet Explorer\ Main

den Eintrag Window_Placement löschen.

Thanks a lot Jan 23, 2004

for the moment Jerzy's solution is working perfectly, but should it happen again I will use also the instructions of Geneviève.

You have both made my day...
