Re:Cursorcowboy regarding your post.....
Upon launching IE, the home page is approximately eight inches by ten inches in size. The home page site (Bellsouth.com) is also located to the left side of the monitor screen. All web pages including Cnet, are the same way, very small in size. I have not been able to correct this.
1. Opening IE is controlled by the mode used to start it. Many times, we find IE is opened when the computer starts and one I wonder why users allow. I only want things to happen when I desire. If you start IE, what is the means?
a. If there is an icon on the Desktop and it does not have the tiny arrow indicating it is a shortcut, then you have no way of selecting whether the module opens, Normal window, Minimized, or Maximum as you do when right-clicking a shortcut and then on the Shortcut tab clicking the down-arrow in the Run: section and selecting your personal preference.
b. If #a above is the case, create your own shortcut and place it where you want -- either the Desktop or perhaps in the QuickLaunch area, and then select your personal preference of how it opens.
2. You can always mouse left-click-&-hold in the blue title bar of a window to move it. In addition, if you look closely at the lower right corner of a window you'll see two chevrons which when placing the mouse over, the cursor become a two-headed arrow that means this corner can be moved in an oblique direction to resize a window -- but it depends on several factors of whether this will always hold for the next time. Something you simply learn.
