    Have got an annoying glitch with my newly-restored Outlook Express that is driving me nuts, but I can't figure out how to change it. Every time I open up a message window, whether it's incoming or a new one to send, the window opens in a little box, about 2 inches square, & I then have to maximise it to make it a worthwhile, usable size. I've been through all the drop-downs & can't find a setting to change it so new windows open full size.

    Any ideas anyone?

    Try creating a new email message, then rather than maximising it, drag the corners of the message out so that it fills the screen, or there abouts. Close the message down and then create a new one, it should have remembered the last size it opened up as and be as near to full screen as poss.

    Someone else might know a better way (reg tweak or other) of maximising the message straght from the off, but that should get you going for starters.
