Re: Window opens to small size
Close all but one (1) XX window. "Grab" the corners of the remaining window
with your cursor and "stretch" it to the desired size but do NOT maximize
it! Now close the resized window.

The resized window MUST be the last window closed in order for its size to
be remembered.

Or you can install IE New Window Maximizer and forget about it!
