Hi Brian.

I want to say if she uses the 'maximize\minimize' boxes in the upper right hand side of IE to get it to 'normal', then close out IE using the 'X' to close, IE will remember that.

Yes, press the F11 key, then use those boxes, you'll see slight movement and be able to tell which one makes the Window slightly larger or smaller.
