    Hello,

    I have a boring pb with XP Pro : often, the windows have a bad size. For example when I switch the calculator from standard mode to scientific mode, the window isn't resized (then, it is too small). Same thing appears in IE, when a ad pop-up appears, this window is always the same size than the prtevious windows...

    It seems it is a Win XP problem...

    Any idea ??

    Thanks a lot for your help :)

    Well you can change the size of a window of a program by right-clicking the program icon/ Properties/ Run: start in Maximized, Normal or Minimized.

    OK? I know it, but this is not really the question. :(

    Actually, it's not normal that iE always open a new window with the same size than the previous windows, even if this window is opened by a JavaScript code which affects the width and height of the window... At the beginning, I believed this was just a problem of IE 6. But I checked on another PC under XP, and the behavior was correct (correct size of a new window). Because a can also see this strange behavior with the calculator (same thing with media player when I change the skin) only in my PC, I guess there is a problem with my XP installation (corrupt registry database ??)...

    WinSize v1.6 Beta 1 is a dinosaur of a program, but I have used it since '96... and it still works too. No footprint, no slowdowns, all good.
