How can make Explorer 5.1 retain the size of the window when I exit the program?
Everytime I open Explorer 5.1, I need to resize the window to use the whole screen. Is there a way to tell Explorer to remember this setting when I exit the program?

I've wondered about this same question - anyone out there able to help us? Personally, sometimes the size stays where I left it when I start up IE, but other times when I start up IE the window is tiny.

Internet Explorer remembers the last active window size before you quit the application.
Upon launching the IE application the next time, the window size will open to the stored setting.

As for maintaining a setting for a window size everytime it launches... I do not know the solution for that.

When IE quits it seems to close all the back windows first, then the active one. Usually, anyway. Close any pop-up or ad banner windows before you quit, and let us know if that helps.
