by Lucosi Fuller

Some people don't care to have a menu bar on their Web browser windows. They want to see Web pages on a full screen. If you're one of those people who believes the menu bar just gets in the way, you can try a Registry tweak that can make your Web browser windows open at full screen size by default.

Click on the "Start" icon.

Click on "Run..."

Type "Regedit" in the "Open" box and either click on "OK" or press the "Enter" key.

Navigate to the Internet Explorer "Main" key by clicking on each of the following registry keys: HKEY_CURRENT_USER Software Microsoft Internet Explorer Main

Click on "FullScreen" in the right pane to open the registry key.

Change the "Value data" to "Yes" and click on "OK." Close the Registry Editor. When you open Internet Explorer again, it will open in full screen mode.
