Maximize IE window permanently

With the default configuration of IE/Windows OS, any new IE window that opens up, does not open in maximized size. Even if you maximize those new windows manually, they still go back to their own size the next time you open them. To fix this, following is the solution I found while searching on the net:
  • Close all instances of Internet Explorer except one. Open a new window, and close the original. Type (case sensitive) the following into the address bar (where XXX,XXX is your screen resolution), and press ENTER -> javascript:moveTo(0,0);resizeTo(xxx,xxx)
  • When the new window re-sizes, hold the CTRL key and close the window. New windows should now open at full size, with everything visible.

This is another of those documentations that I need to keep :-)
