    can anyone tell me what iv done.

    if i click on a searched page it opens as in the first pic.

    it used to open as a halfpage as in the second pic.


    tried dragging to size but the next page reverts to the first pic.

    dragging won't do it john click on the full page box (next to the X at the top right of screen) and then just maybe the system will remember it

    Similar things happen randomly on my machine. No idea why and I was in IT for over 30 years - but never been bothered enough to investigate :Smile:

    Anyhow, isn't it an advantage for a Scarborough window to be as small as possible? :roflmto:

    Some rather irritating web pages have a bit of script in them that forces a smaller window size and sometimes, especially with IE, this can reset your default window size.

    If you get this problem again, this should fix it:

    1. Close all IE windows apart from one.
    2. Type "javascript:moveTo(0,0);resizeT*o(XXX,XXX)" into the address bar (without the quotes) and hit the Enter key. in place of the "XXX,XXX" you should put the window size you want; e.g. "800,600".
    3. Hold down the CTRL key and close the window.

    All new windows opened should subsequently be at the right size.
