Hi maharoger --
If your links are opening in your browser and if your browser is Internet Explorer, here is one way to maximize windows.
Right click the shortcut icon for IE next to the Start button, choose Properties, change it from 'normal' to 'maximized'. Now open it.
Now RIGHT-CLICK any link on the page, choose Open In New Window....don't maximize it....instead, use the mouse to resize it to what you want it to be by dragging sides and bottom.
Now close the FIRST window you opened, and then close the new one you just resized.
Reopen IE from the shortcut icon again, and all windows from now on will be the size you chose and created.
Please post results if this works for you.
