The browser is a piece of software running on a client computer, so you are somewhat limited to what you can do.

The people that do want this effect, has an 'ENTER' link on their homepage. On this link they apply the open window behaviour (javascript opened window), in this behaviour you can set the width and height along with a couple of other parameters for the new window.

Ok, this may sound rude, but it has to be told.

Its my computer, my browser. Who are you to decide what size MY browser window should be?

Do you think I am that stupid? If you lock the size of my window I am never visiting your site again!

Most of your visitors would think like that.... If you still think your visitors are stupid there are countless sites that will show u how to do it...

I think what ranjan is trying to say is that your site (and the one that already is successful) would be more successful and accessible if you didn't do it this way. And I completely agree with him on this. :)

If you want to do it anyways, the behaviour is in your Behaviours Panel and is called Open Browser Window.

There was no reason to send me a PM. You could have said what u wanted to right here.

I just expressed my point of view on the question, take it or leave it!!
