Have you tried maximizing the window and closing it normally? Over here,
there is no need to press Shift and the X button. IE7 remembers the last
window size it uses and opens again with the same size.
If the problem persists, try running IE7 without any add-ons.
Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools >
Internet Explorer 7 (No Add-ons) to start without any add-ons. Try using the
browser and see if the same problem arises.
If the problem does not occur again, start IE7 normally, go to Tools >
Manage Add-ons and disable all the add-ons. Enable each add-on one at each
time and see if the problem occurs again. Once it occurs again after
enabling an add-on, you have nailed the culprit.
(if the menu bar does not appear, hit the Alt key on the keyboard)

Today I was demonstrating the WinXP Home Accessibility Magnifier
feature to a friend – I don’t use it and never have.
After finishing, I note that each time I start up IE7, it opens up in
a window which is full screen width, but about one inch in height.
In the past, when faced with a small opening IE or other program
display, I've manually dragged it to full size, then Shift Clicked the
X box in the URH corner to close IE7. Reopening it then restores
But now that technique doesn’t work.
FWIW the problem is limited to IE7. Excel, Word, etc.. open normally.
