I remember there is a tricky registry tweak that can allow you to change this setting, but what it is off the top of my head I've no idea.
However, you could try this, I know it works in XP, but as for the other OS's I'm not sure.
1. This will only work on shortcuts, not the original IE desktop program icon.
2. Right click on your shortcut (for example in your Favourites menu) and select Properties.
3. Click on the Shortcut tab.
4. In the drop-down box labelled 'Run' select 'Maximize' (or 'Minimize' for that matter!)
5. Click OK.
You'd need to do that for every favourite or desktop shortcut, and you can do it with program shortcuts too.
Hope it helps! (if it isn't clear, feel free to u2u me)
