Question Opening a link

When I'm browsing the net and I click on a link...the new window opens up in only a quarter of my screen (using IE 6.0) Is there a setting I can change so the link will open up in a full screen? I realize this is a dumb question but any help would be appreciated.

I've tried "tools\internet options" to no avail...also called Dell and tried

Well when clicking on a link hold down the shift key. See if that works.

I found this one, hope it helps..

# Open a single Internet Explorer window to the smaller size.
# Drag the corners of the window until it completely fills the screen. Do not use the maximize button to enlarge the window.
# Hold down the Ctrl key, keep it depressed, and using the mouse click File and then Exit on the menu bar. Do not use the "X" in the upper right corner to close the window.
# Internet Explorer should now open in a full window.
# If it still opens to a smaller size repeat the above instructions, substituting the "Shift" key for the "Ctrl" key.
