  2. Fonts and IE settings

    This is because the site you mentioned uses thai fonts. It is only possible to view the website normally on your device only if you are able to get that thai font and install it in your device.

    Once you get hold of the font, you will need to use the activesync's explorer and put that font in \windows\fonts directory followed by soft reset.

    Got it:

    regedit:
    [+] HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    [-] Software
    [-] Microsoft
    [-] Internet Explorer
    [-] Main
    [*] FullScreen = Yes

    Click ok and reboot

    However in win 10 full screen does not appear as an option in the brown folder but its now on the right. And there it was, clicked on modify and changed No to Yes.

    Will this old-fashioned method still work for you ?.................

    Right click at IE11 shortcut > click properties > Shortcut tab at top > at Run heading, click the pointer and select Maximized > OK when done.

    If you do not have an IE11 desktop shortcut, go All apps > Windows Accessories > right click at Internet Explorer > More > Open file location > right click at Internet Explorer > Properties.........

    Hey David, thanks, I have adjusted my desktop IE properties, now for some testing

    After a bit of clicking I have discovered that the IE icon does now open as I wish, but when I click on a desktop net shortcut it opens in small window *Confused

    You mean shortcuts such as Tenforums.com ?

    Mine opens full screen.
    It might be because that net shortcut was opened and closed in normal mode. The system remembers the size that shortcut was last closed.
    Open your IE11 and make sure it is in full screen.
    Then open one of your desktop net shortcut. Does it open full screen now ?

    In short, if you change the window size instead of full screen, and you close it. Next time it will open to the size you have made the change.

    Yes, what I do is often used sites I have bookmarked and then dragged bookmark to my desktop, these open in IE in small window mode but IE opens 'normal'. I also have 'net' icons for online software I use a lot, like google search, facebook (not for stupid chatter), bank, paypal, emails etc. Forums are in a desktop folder.

    Anyway, I seems to recall, when this problem first appeared (in IE9 I think) there was a solution whereby a person opened IE into full screen with top bars visible (menu etc); left it open then did something else with another link, closed IE page behind it and it was supposed, from then on, to remain covering the screen, but that's only a vague memory and may not be right for 11. anyway I cant seem to do it. I am now wondering if this was mention in 8 forum, but a long time ago???

    edit: I just came back via direct desktop bookmark option, screen opened in small!!

    So, refresh my memory.
    What is you current issue ?

    Have you tried open IE11 first to make sure it is opened in full screen, then open any of your net shortcuts ?
    They should open in full screen from here on as long as you do not manually change the window size.

    This is how it opens when I click on shortcut

    and how I want it to open

    note: when I click on the IE button directly it open as per the second image, normal screen, not minimised. I am going to try and delete a shortcut, remove it from bookmarks, and go to site and redo bookmark, then drag it to desktop, it might help??

    I removed all trace of win 10 forum, went to it via address bar, bookmarked it in IE, and then dragged bookmark to desktop, no difference, still small window

    Seems to me we are going in circles.
    Permit me to try again...................

    1. Use the "properties" method and set IE11 to open maximized.
    2. open IE 11 to make sure it does open maximized.
    3. open one of your desktop shortcuts. Does it open maximized ?
    If it does, it should continue to open maximized as long as you have not manually changed it to different size.
