Periodically when I open a second window of Internet Explorer, it doesn't appear full screen. I've not been able to track this down but I suspect it has to do with the order I closed the browser windows. Internet Explorer is designed to open in the last size and setting when closed. Regardless, it's annoying to have to resize the second window.
After trying several offered solutions, the best one I've found is below. It works 90% of the time for me.
To reset your browser window so it will open full screen,
1. Close all browser windows except the problem one.
2. Maximize the browser window by grabbing the corners and expanding the browser widow to your desired size. It's important to use this method rather than using the Maximize button or double-clicking the Title Bar to maximize the window.
3. Hold your Shift key down and then click the Close button. The Close button is the one with the X in the upper right corner.
