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

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

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.
