New windows opens at small (default) size
How can I set a new window to always open full screen? Example, when I
open a page it is where I've set it; full screen. If I click a link within
that page, the new window opens at the default small size.

Windows remembers the size of the last Normal IE window closed.
Open such a link.
Don't use the maximize button.
Stretch the edges/corners so that the window fills the screen.
Close all other IE windows.
Close the stretched window.

If that doesn't do it try the REG file here:

IE New Window Maximiser seems to have done the trick. Thanks Frank.
