Automatically maximize IE windows?

Hey everybody. I guess my question is, is there some sort of file that can be downloaded and imported into the registry that will automatically maximize all Internet Explorer windows when they are opened? A quick search on Google brings up quite a few programs that claim to have this option. However, i'm not really looking for an entire program, but rather a simple registry file that can be imported, or some registry modifications that I can make myself. Anybody know of such a solution?

All responses are greatly appreciated.

I find that sometimes it is best to manually drag the window to the desired size, then the opening windows will assume that size.

I agree with Chuck. You can resize a windows to almost full size, then hold down the ctrl key and close it using the 'X' in the upper right corner. They should start opening at the new size from then on. It might eventually resort to a smaller window. In that case you will have to redo the procedure.

Do yourself a favor BACKUP!

A proven procedure is using the IE shortcut icon, right click and select Properties.
In it's Run box change it to Maximized. Click Apply and Ok.

Using that shortcut launch IE.

Using any link on that page, right click and select Open in a New Window.

Click and drag the title bar to the top left of the screen.

Wave the cursor over the lower right hand corner to get the cursor to change to the double sided arrow. Then click and drag it to the lower right hand corner of the viewable screen. (simulating the maximum size of the window)

Now close (exit) the original window and then exit the new window. (in that order)

From then on all windows will open as such.

Note: There is no such thing as a New Window opening "Maximized".
