The stretch and close did not work on my system. Maximize and close either.
The suggestion by another member in another post worked. Right-click on IE
icon on taskbar, right-click Internet Explorer, Properties, Run (drop-down)
I have used the 'Internet Explorer Properties Run Maximized' on all IE links
and this works but each one must be done individually.
It does NOT change the fact that when using a 'Links' shortcut from the
taskbar or a shortcut in Windows Explorer that IE opens a 'normal' sized
window. Their must be a registry key control?
