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.?
