Closed Windows Sizes not remembered Tags: Configuration Internet Explorer Windows 7 Last response: May 12, 2012 5:10 AM in Windows 7 Share foscooter a b $ Windows 7 April 23, 2010 2:57:51 AM Didn't find this anywhere here, so here I go: Windows 7 remembers most of my windows sizes (i.e. Excel, Quicken, iTunes, Outlook) but not Internet Explorer. I keep having to "drag" it to the top, to get a full page height (I don't want width). I've tried <Ctrl> close, <Alt> close, <Shift> close. Any suggestions? P.S. I do know how to "tweak" my registry. So edits will be fine.

Thanks anyways for answering my 25 month old thread. WR2: that close the tabs. I'll try it, and see if it remembers the size of IE. nikorr a b $ Windows 7 May 12, 2012 3:11:45 AM foscooter said:Nikorr: looks interesting, but requires an app to run in the background, which I don't want to do.

I don't know why, but I don't have that problem. nikorr a b $ Windows 7 May 12, 2012 3:15:19 AM I think WR2 meant, that u display your windows to the desired position and than close the programs that way (Alt+F4) and the system may remember that. foscooter a b $ Windows 7 May 12, 2012 4:26:34 AM WR2: Didn't work. But I'm over it. It's been 2 years!
