CAUSE

This is because the short cut to Internet Explorer has its default "Run" property as "Normal Window"  

RESOLUTION

Right click on the desktop and create a short cut to "Program Files/Internet Explorer/iexplore.exe"
Right click on the short cut and then select Properties.
Click on the tab "Shortcut" and then change the value in the Run command to "Maximized".
Click Apply.
Now Internet Explorer will open in the maximized state when you click on any short cut to iexplore.exe.
