Internet Explorer always open minimized mode


For some time now I've been encountering this issue with IE. It opens up in minimized mode by default and each time I have to resize the browsing windows.


Open the registry (Start > Run > type "regedit" and go to:
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

Delete the following key:
  • Window_Placement 

Close the registry and restart your PC.
