Question about Internet Explorer
    #9749874 - 02/06/09 03:57 PM (12 years, 23 days ago)

Anyone know how I would configure IE so that when I close a window it will pop up in the same location when I open it again?

Step 1, download firefox ...
Step 2, look for appropriate plugin
Step 2a, if appropriate plugin doesn't exist, write one

Can`t use firefox, I have to use IE at work.

IE is open the whole time, it`s just when I have to open a new window I`d like it to open in the same spot every time.  It used to do this on my old laptop but can`t get it to work on the new PC.

Also, how would I get an actual question mark instead of this - É ... É

:rofl:

(sorry, couldn't help myself)

You can set the page that IE loads each time you start it, but I have no idea how to force it to load the last page you browsed each time you open it.

No that`s not what I mean.. say I close an IE window (which isn`t maximized) which is located on the far top right hand corner of my screen.  When I close the window and open another IE window I want it to open in that same location instead of on the left hand side of the screen.

Again, I have no idea... however, Ythan usually has the answers to these type of questions.  Be patient.  :smile:

make a file called something.html
put this code in it:
Code:
<script language="JavaScript">
window.moveTo(0,0);
window.resizeTo(700,700);
window.location="http://google.com";
</script>


where moveTo(x,y) is the position of where you want it, in pixels
resize is the size and location you would set to your desired homepage
set it to your homepage in IE

surprised I came up with that :lol:

I fixed it by holding shift + ctrl.  Whenever I pressed the question mark key an E with a dash above would appear (incase it doesn't appear that way on your screen).

Don't know if this will work, because I need the pop-up window to be executed through a link in IE.

Hmmm, is that a keyboard setting? There should be an option in windows control panel. If you've found a way around then no biggie.

(strange, when I first read this thread it was an E with an accent, but now it's a funny question mark. I don't know if I'll ever understand unicode.)

Well when you save the file with the html code open it in IE then copy the location out of the url bar and use that as your IE hompage.

That is if I interpreted the code correctly.

Step 1, download firefox ...
Step 2, change your user agent so it matches IE's user agent
Step 3 Enjoy the additional security of firefox while your network traffic continues to assert that you are running IE.

I use firefox outside of work.  Can't use it for work as it's not compatible with the web software. 

The problem is resolved now, all that was needed was a windows update.

Lots of people are forced to use IE at work because they don't have administrative rights to use anything else, or, like deranger, they have to use crappy in-house web apps which are only compatible with IE.

I have the same problem.  Very annoying.  VMWare to the rescue...
