    Hello Trevor,

    Size and position the window as you want it, and then hold down the CTRL key
    when you click its Close window button. It should reappear next time
    correctly.

    Good luck

    Try holding SHIFT in place of CTRL.

    I found that with IE7 I had to do that several times before it finally
    decided to stick.

    Hi Trevor,

    Try going to the link below for details on how reset your view settings and increase it's cache size. It will help Vista remember again.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    RE: opening new window in full size

    After months of searching I have found the answer-Thanks to a post by Mr. Ed

    This Works!

    Set Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) to open to a maximized position for all
    Internet Shortcuts

    1. Launch IE7 from the IE7 Quick Launch Toolbar icon.
    2. If you do not have an IE7 Shortcut showing in your Quick Launch
    Toolbar,
    a. Go to your [C:\Program Files > Internet Explorer] folder.
    b. Locate iexplore.exe
    c. Right click on it and select [Sent To > Desktop (create
    shortcut)].
    d. Launch IE7 from the new IE7 Desktop Shortcut icon.
    e. Follow the remaining steps.
    3. Make sure it's *NOT* maximized.
    4. If it is maximized, click the center tab in the 3 upper right tabs to
    minimize it. (see included image below)
    5. Drag the edges to where you want them.
    6. Close IE7.

    From now on URL shortcuts will open IE7 at that size.

    Note: The new Desktop IE7 Shortcut can now be deleted if you do not want to
    keep it, it is no longer needed.
