IE11 annoyance

  1. #21


    Opera** does not allow me to faithfully copy text from emails to site, which I do a lot of seeing as how I get a lot of info via emails; it also copies the background. Same with Chrome. So I don't use them. I have just deleted FF (again) due to misalignment of web pages online. So ........................................

    Now back with IE11 but same old fault - opening IE in full screen instead of a half page. There is a solution but damned if I can remember it, it involves opening web, dragging screen full size then - something to do with opening another over it, but cant remember now.

    ** hell with it, going with opera, fed up of others problems, at least opera works, just added wordpad to desktop to clean C&P from emails.

    Hi,
    Internet explorer will remember the (last closed) window size,
    I guess one tip might be do not touch the screen borders or the dragged window will snap to full screen,
    This might interfere with the memory never has for me though,
    Cheers.

    Hi,
    All I can say is it's not normal,
    Go to Internet options,
    General section Tabs button and post a screen shot of the options being used,
    One tip might be to take the option away from ie to Let ie decide how pops are opened,
    Choose either a new window or a new tab,

    Also Internet options/ Advanced and check the top box to use software rendering...
    Cheers.

    As requested. I did the software rendering tick box, some pages open full screen, others do not. If I click a web link on my desktop, it does not open full.

    Are you clicking on the exe file or the shortcut ?

    It won't work with the exe file, just the shortcut.
