All you have to do is use a javascript function to open a new window to the exact size of the user's desktop, I think.

Maybe one of the more proficient javascripters in here can give you a better answer, but I think it might be good for you to study the source code on http://www.blitzds.com/relaunch.html

Although, you can easily get around not having the menu bars there.

All you have to do is hit CTRL+N in IE to bring up a new web browser, with the currently loaded page already in it, and all your toolbars n' whatnot.

Yup... a lot of sites do it with downloads & images.. Have their download URLs open up in a new window with no toolbars n' whatnot..

Well, sometimes I like to put those downloads on my Linux server... so I CTRL+N, view source, get the URL of what I want, and wget it right to my server, rather than having to rely on the inadequacy of Internet Explorer to keep up.

read pages 4-7 of thau's javascript tutorial, should give you exactly what you need, starts on this page:

http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/98/ ... rogramming

If you want to learn some javascript, that tutorial in general isn't a bad place to start.

Hmmm I never liked sites that do that cos I have a large monitor where I have the radio or TV picture in one corner as I operate and always like msn up on my right. I like to see these things running.

The worst sites take away the whole windows frame and unless you know how to shut it down and believe me most users don’t then that’s really bad usability.

Its best to design it so the user can re-size it to fit.
