IE New Window Maximizer is made by jiiSoft, the same company that also makes Smart MP3 Renamer and Command Creator. Other features found in IE New Window Maximizer include the ability to:
- Open new windows in the background (if you press the Ctrl key while opening a new IE window, this window will automatically be sent to the background)
- Hide/Close all IE windows (with a user identified hotkey)
- Create window rules for specific IE windows
- Use Fullscreen mode (all new windows open in "fullscreen")
- Close popup windows.
These are impressive features for a utility that doesn't cost a cent. As mentioned, some of these features listed above require configuration on the part of the user, but very little really. Once installed, you can go down to the System Tray (Notification Area) by the clock in the bottom right corner of your desktop, double-click on its black icon, and then go up to the Options menu and choose Configuration. Here you will find most of the options you have to choose from. You can also assign window rules (under Options). So, what are you waiting for? Get rid of one more annoyance, and start opening up those new Web windows fullscreen, the way they were intended to be seen.
