How do I create a shortcut to a web page and have IE open a new session with the window maximized?
You first have to create the shortcut manually by right-clicking the desktop and selecting New, Shortcut. In the location field, type the path to Internet Explorer enclosed in quotes or click the browse button to look for it. Then you will leave a space then type the web page address. An example would be "c:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" https://univmail.cis.mcmaster.ca. You then have to give the shortcut a name. Once the shortcut has been created, you need to right-click on it and select properties. In the shortcut tab, under the "Run" section, select Maximized.
