    Edge opens new window maximized

    I've installed the new anniversary update, and with Edge now supporting extensions, I'm going to give it a try.

    But there is a showstopper for me. I don't normally use tabs when browsing - I rather open new windows. Clicking Ctrl+N to open a new window works fine, but the problem is that the new window is maximized. I then have to doubleclick the title bar of the new window to restore it to correct size (same as main window).

    The main Edge window has the correct size (also when first opening Edge) - the issue seems only to affect new Windows.

    Any ideas?

    Give it time to settle into your way of working, I found my Edge was initially opening maximised but after a few false starts it is all opening correctly and remembers how I last used the window (size and position).
