My desktop shortcuts always open minimized - even if saved while full sized. I run cCleaner but it is never checked next to Windows Size/Location Cache
I use Windows XP svc pack 3 and IE 8

I'll ask:

by boxfiddler Moderator In reply to not just desktop shortcut ...

A) Have you tried the things people here have offered as help? If so, if they didn't work, have you posted the results of your attempts? We don't read minds.

B) Have you tried the things people here have offered as help? If so, if something worked, why haven't you marked the helpful posts as helpful? Being stingy with 'thumbs' tends to irritate a lot of question answerers.

C) In order to help, we need detailed feedback from you in response to our suggestions. We don't read minds.

D) People who answer questions here are volunteers. Marking posts helpful gives them a bit of a boost. I'm betting there's some minor competition in relation to the collection of 'thumbs' (posts marked as helpful).

so there's that "social" aspect to the question, [ where the question is irrelevent] it's the dialogue that counts.

Imagine the poster that gets the correct and/or usable suggestion/answer in 1 post. Not much ongoing social connection and dialogue in that.

but for the average Joe consumer who's looking for freebies, or simply those who have nothing else better to do and ask questions just to see if anyone will answer [a laugh]...

I'm just trying to figure things out on my Windows XP tablet. Thanks to everyone for all of the input. I have tried many things that everyone has written but I've probably missed a few. It still opens the Favorites from Start menu in some small half-size window. I went to Tools > Internet Options > Advanced tab and hit Reset. I went to All Programs > Internet Explorer > Properties and on the Shortcut tab I selected Maximized. So that opens big, but everything in Start > Favorites still opens in some custom smaller window.
