I like to use Explorer full screen when surfing the Web.

However, when I minimize Explorer to the dock and later click on its icon again, it doesn´t open full screen, instead it reduces the window size to prevent overlapping with the dock.

Is there any way to prevent this behaviour?. I hate resizing the Explorer window manually every now and then.
Why doesn´t Explorer retain the windows size?

Thanks

Most people complain if it *doesn't* do this - people don't like it when windows overlap the Dock. So I think this is unlikely to change - but have you tried turning on the Dock's auto-hide feature? That might help.

How big is your dock? (ha ha) Too big if you need the extra real estate to comfortably view webpages. Dang.

This is a feature. I hate when stuff gets in the way of the dock. Illustrator isn't dock aware as far as I can tell, and it bugs the crap out of me.

I mean overlapping with the dock, but staying behind it. That´s the whole purpose of having a transparent dock.
Anyway, I hate it and would love to have an option to turn off this feature
