I have an internet link on my desktop that directly opens up a page that i
use for work.
the (fake) address is :http://www.fake.com/index.html.

Is there a way I can modify this address in order to have it open in a
browser that's a specific size? Ideally like a '_blank',370,525 type
scenario?

Thanks for any help!

Replace the link with a file named "fake.html", containing:
<html>
<script type="text/javascript">
resizeTo(370,525);
location="http://www.fake.com/index.html";
</script>
</html>

Doesn't seem to cooperate w/winXP pro.
I put
<html><script
type="text/javascript">resizeTo(370,525);location="http://www.fakeaddress.co
m/index.html";</script></html>

into the URL part of the shortcuts properties. Whenever u hit Apply, it adds
"http://" in front of it.

Any ideas?

Thanks either way.

Two things:
The first is I suggest you always reply to a newspost at the end of the
previous entry - that way it makes it easier for folks to read the history
(ie original question at top and rest of conversation follows).

I think what the chap was suggesting is that you open Notepad and copy the
script he suggested in to it. Then save the notepad document on your
desktop and call it fake.html (or whatever you like, but make sureit has a
html (or htm) ending).

This should solve your problem.

I meant to completely delete the link from your desktop, and
instead, use an HTML file with the contents I posted.

On top of that (an perhaps even more important) is to trim the quotes, and
not include the entire posting you are answering to.
