    Something has got to be wrong. Do you have a program called DellTouch installed on your laptop? I found this: How to Program Hotkeys on a Dell Laptop | eHow
    Thank you so much Gypsie! This is great info for me. I'm just in the process of forgetting everything I ever knew, and "WHOOPS!" everything changes! LOL

    As far as Dell Programs, I didn't cough up the cash they wanted for continued licensing, so a 6-month old lap top has no functioning Dell connections of any kind. I forgot and tried to use the Dell Touch. I was quickly reminded that "no valid license" could be found. It's quite "irksome" that Dell just cuts off all support like that. HP doesn't. Acer doesn't. Anyway...

    I was able to get the IE 11 window to consistently open from desktop maximized. I used the technique of going into the properties of the desktop shortcut & the Start Menu shortcut. IE still opens minimized when it opens from itself during browser use (the "open in a new Window option). I don't know the cure to that one!!!

    Again, thank you so much for correcting me on the use of the short cut/hot keys!!! I actually got the instructions I had from a very reliable tech site. Must be they were VERY old!

    Be Well. Take Good Care;
