    Everytime IE opens a link it opens it not in the maximum size, and I always have to press the maximize, is there any tweak so every link or windows IE opens will be in the Maximum size ?

    yes...

    first maximize all windows, then close all windows holding down the control button

    now, hit windows key+e...(explorer, obviously)

    now, get your window maximized, and now hit tools, folder oprtions,view, save the view to all folders,

    next, hold control, and close the window.

    for good measure, open windows explorer again, (this time it will open maximized), save to all folders again, and close again holding the control button

    explorer is obviously integral to ie, and settings have better stick when they're done from here...let me know how long this lasts for ya.

    this has worked for everyone I've given it to.

    however, there's a chance the setting won't stick...if you want to try a registry hack, wich is less prefered, but supposedly works also,...definately try my gui method before you hack the registry for this, anyway, here it is

    Backup these RegKeys.

    1:[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\BagMRU]

    2:[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\Bags]

    After that you must delete them

    restart windows
