Is there a way to control the size of windows when they open when using IE? I am tired of the window opening up small and then I need to maximize it.

TIA,
Jim

If you right-click on a desktop icon, then go to properties, there is an option to have programs start up in a "normal" window, maximized, or minimized.

doubleclick the window's upper bar. No other idea

If you have your windoze set up to remember window size, just make the tiled window full screen

And while you're at it, trash IE and use Firefox or some other web browser as well. smile

If you have IE7 no need to open more windows. Just let them open in a new tab.

I personally hate new tabs. I also hate that xls and word closes all open documents by clicking the red x, sometimes WITHOUT saving or asking about saving the other open docs. I don't see the reason in this, and I wasn't able to find an option to stop this incredible behaviour.

With regard to multiple tabs on web browsers, I have no idea how IE7 handles it, but with Firefox there's a configuration option to prompt you before closing the program when two or more tabs are open.

Easy. Upgrade to a real operating system. Try Linux, *BSD, etc.. There are lots of options out there.

If you are determined to stick with BillWare, you might give OpenOffice a try as a replacement for Word and Excell.
