i am having problem in html page.
I have two html page one containing link to other.
I am using href to display new page and using target as _blank.
I want to open new page in maximized mode.
But new page is getting opened in restore mode.
Can someone tell me how to open new page in maximized mode.
Please help me.
Thanks in advance.

Its a browser setting, you have no control over it. (Thankfully since almost
no webpages look sensible at 1600x1200)
