Make Internet Explorer open full screen, maximized, or in the window size you want

By default, Internet Explorer will start in the same state as the last window you closed: this means that if you were in full screen mode and exited, Internet Explorer will open in full screen mode the next time you launch it; the same applies in most cases when it was maximized, or when it was a custom size window you wanted. In this tutorial, we will explain how to force Internet Explorer to open with the window size and settings you like. (These techniques are illustrated by using Internet Explorer 8, but they also work in earlier versions, including Internet Explorer 7, 6, 5.5, etc.)

Make Internet Explorer open full screen (full page)

This is the easiest option, follow these steps:

Tip: If you are sharing your computer with other Windows users, who may not stay in full screen mode as you'd like it, all you need to do when Internet Explorer starts is to press F11 to manually switch to full screen.

Make Internet Explorer open maximized

Here is how you can force Internet Explorer to launch maximized:

Make Internet Explorer open minimized

You can also force Internet Explorer to launch as a minimized window: just follow the same steps outlined above, but this time, choose "Minimized" instead of "Maximized"!

Make Internet Explorer open in the window size you want (custom)

Generally, all you need to do to force Internet Explorer to launch in a custom size window is to close all IE windows except the current one; then, resize and re-position the last window opened where you want it, and exit Internet Explorer.

Internet Explorer on Windows Now re-open Internet Explorer, and it should have automatically saved the last window size and position; keep in mind that if you have multiple IE windows opened, the last one's size and position will be remembered.

If Internet Explorer keeps opening in a maximized or minimized window, this could be because you are using a customized shortcut: follow the instructions above to customize the shortcut, and force IE to start in a "Normal Window" under the shortcut's Run dropdown menu.
