    make all windows open full screen but not maxmised

    id like to be able to get all of my windows to open in a way that makes them
    fill the whole screen, but without being maximised. i hate having to manually
    adjust each window, and sometimes the just reset themsevles to the default
    size. is there a way to do this?

    its just im still not keen on the full screen border idea microsoft have used

    thanks

    If I understand you right all you should need to do is sae your orig. IE
    window maximized.
    You need to actually manually stretch it to fit the screen. Unfort. IE 6+
    will not save maximized.
    At least that is what I have found to be the case.
    After IE is closed your browser should open as a full screen. You may have
    to also resize any
    desktop shortcuts you've saved.

    no sorry i mean any window in general, i can get it to fit the whole screen
    by manually resizing, but sometimes it resets and things such as my computer
    get small again, i would like ALL windows to open as big as possible without
    maximising

    This program will help you re-size all your windows to an exact, predefined
    size, which you can configure with your own window-size settings (it works
    with Vista):

    As per the previous post and link I found by opening any window and in the
    minimized window view, I then would click and drag the bottom right corner or
    any corner to the size I liked then close the window it would save that size.
    It worked for me without and software download. Not sure if this is what you
    were after.?
