Changing browser window size

The size of newly launched browser windows is determined by settings in your browser.

The default behavior for Internet Explorer is to open at the same size it was at the last time it was closed. While the default does apply in many cases it's not always consistent.

Follow the steps below to change the size of new browser windows:

  1. Close all but one browser window.

    NOTE: if there is more than one browser window open this procedure will not work.
  2. Make the remaining window the desired size by clicking, holding left mouse button down, and dragging window sides to desired size.

    NOTE: Do not use the maximize button to enlarge the window.
  3. Close browser window by holding down the Ctrl key and using the mouse, click File and then Exit on the menu bar.

    NOTE: Do not use the "X" in the upper right corner to close the window.
  4. Reopen browser. The window size should retain the size it was last closed at.

If window still opens to a smaller size repeat the above instructions, substituting the "Shift" key for the "Ctrl" key when exiting.
