Hello all

I got this problem that when i open any files ether documents, pictures, or even my control panel the pages never opens full pages. I always need to enlarge them my self. Is there a way to fix this problem.

Thanks all

If instead of enlarging them by clicking on the open full page box, just resize the window to 98% of your screen size and then close it. this will then be the default windows size for that particular program. If you do it for each program, they will all open the way you want them.
There is I believe a more direct way, but it takes more to do, will need to be reset occasionally, and does not do any more for you. This method has worked for me since Windows 95 ('95, '98, XP, 2000, 7 home & work) and you may not want all windows to open full (I like a browser to be nearly full, Task Manager to be tall & narrow, Computer, Control Panel and similar to be just large enough to show all - about 1/4 screen, etc).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Sounds like my window preferences are very similar to yours.

If I grab the edge or corner of a window and *slowly* move it to
the edge of the desktop (maybe letting go of it and grabbing it
again), I can size the window to anything I want without the
magic maximizer doing its thing. I'll give credit to somebody
at MS for including that capability.
