Before flaming commences, I checked the http://support.microsoft.com, newsgroups, google, etc., and I've tried the usual fixes short of reinstalling the OS...reinstall IE, registry hacks, etc. My machine is Win98SE, up-to-date and fully patched. I also did the open in new window, maximize, close first window by File>Close, close second window, and reopen. Didn't work... When I right click on a link in an active IE6 window to Open in New Window, it opens as a minimized window, which I then have to maximize. Any thoughts? PS. WinXP Pro is coming shortly for me and I don't want to reinstall W98SE.
