  • Which version of Internet Explorer are you running?
    Have you updated and scanned with your anti-virus and anti-malware programs?  You may have picked up a bug that could be causing your problem.
    When you have attempted the suggestions we've made, do you FIRST close all windows?  Click on a shortcut icon that opens minimized, drag, stretch (or whatever method you are trying) to full size.  Select File \ Exit

  • Click on one of the shortcuts that you know will open Minimized (don't have anything else open)

    In the upper, left corner of the window, click on the icon for the file\program.  You'll get a sub-menu that lists Restore, Move, Size, Minimize, Maximize.  Click on Maximize.

    With the full window now open, click on the icon again and select Close.

    1. right click on the shortcut icon
    2. select Properties.   When the properties window opens, you'll see two tabs...General and Shortcut.
    3. Click on the Shortcut tab, go to the  Run dialog window and change from Normal window to Maximized.
    4. Apply and OK.
