IE 5 (OSX 10.1) question

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Is there any way to set the size of the browser window? I looked around preferences and didn;t find any way. I like the window to be as big as my screen, and it is a pain to have to resize every time I open IE.

Have you tried setting the window size, closing the window, and selecting 'New Window'? That's how it's done in the Finder.

Thats how it works in Explorer too, annoying when a popup window comes up and resizes future windows to a tiny square.

If you make the window the size you want and then quit the app the next time you open up IE it should be the size you made it.

It doesn't always work that way, though.

Absolutely. NEVER works for me. No matter what the window is always the same size.

What? I didn't break it...it was the way it always was. :confused: <img src="graemlins/nono.gif" border="0" alt="[No]" />

Anyway, I am now in Netscape...it opens the window to the size I want every time, looks better than IE IMHO (with the "modern" theme). However, I cannot open apple-tilda between webpages but alas, at least it works...

Really? I don't remember a time where it didn't work.
