      New to sky

      When i click on the short cut for sky broadband internet explorer opens in a small window and not a full screen.Is there any way of altering the settings.
      Also the short cut for sky broadband does not appear on any of my other windows user accounts it is not even in add and remove programs on the other user accounts.

      Thanks

      Hi

      You can just click on Internet Explorer Icon.

      Also try this, open the shortcut, then click on the top right of the page to maximise it to full size. (little 2 boxes type icon) in between - and X

      Once opened to full size either hold down the ALT key on your Keyboard and click the X top right to close the page. Then try again. If it does not sort it, use the SHIFT key instead of the ALT and repeat. It's one of those two, just cannot remember.

      IE should open up in the same state it was closed down. ie, if you close it down Maximised it should open Maximised the next time you open it. If you close down in a 'Restore' state, a single square top right, it should open the same size. If yours is not doing this, it may need a fix.

      Have you updated to IE7 yet?
