  • Problem clicking links in webpages

    Right, here's my problem, every time i click a link in a webpage that opens up a new page, the webpage that is opens is REALLY small, i have to drag it bigger or full screen it everytime, is there a way i can set this back to normal (i know it was once ok) or even better, open the page in full screen?

    to be honest, i have tried looking for an answer but i have no clue on what to search for, so my attempts were extreme failures

    this isn't a major problem, just one of those major annoyances that get you stressed through the day

    any help would greatfully appreciated

    OK - here we go - took me AGES to find this before so I sympathise.

    1. Open Internet Explorer.
    2. Restore the window.
    3. Size it to the size you want links to open new windows in.
    4. Close Internet Explorer.
    5. Do it again. (1-4)

    6. Test - you should now find that links open in a restored window of the new size.

        We are still on IE 6 at work (where I am now), but you should be able to right click the hyperlink and select *open link in tabbed window*.

          I dont have IE7 to check the exact location mate but there should be settings in Internet Options so that you can change the default behaviour so that new windows open up in tabs. Sorry i'm not able to be more specific at this time.

            He's right but I share his situation; I can't remember where the setting is.

                This thread has info on IE7 tabs:

                that normally pop up a new browser window, you can change that behavior to opening a new tab in IE7 as follows:

                  About your original question, I know there's at least a few ways to control IE window size (registry, scripts, etc.)

                    With IE6, open IE and have it set to max. Right click a link to open in new window. Drag (this is important) the smaller window to the full screen size. (Do NOT use the maximise button or double click the blue active window bar.)

                    Now switch to the original window and close it (you know, click on the red X. Ok so it is white and the fill colour is red, picky picky picky).
                    Next close the second window that you have resized by draging it to full screen size.

                    Open new IE window. Right click link to open in new window.

                    As I said, this works for IE6. I have not tried it with IE7 as I don't use it. Let me know if it does work for IE7. Thank you, thank you very much. (Sorry, just heard an Elvis song)
