Solved Windows 7 full screen when going to internet.

January 31, 2015 at 16:59:41
Specs: Windows XP
My old computer with windows xp hard drive gone. Have a rebuilt Dell with windows 7. Question: when I go out on the internet how do I get the page to come up full screen without clicking the top to expand picture? I hate having to expand it each time. Is there a setting so it will be the full screen when I go to home page. Thanks Lornan

I found many years ago that I just drag the window open to about 90+% of the desktop, close the browser and it will open the same way after that instead of clicking on the full screen square which does not seem to 'stick' the same way.
If you are still using IE, try Firefox instead.

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

Also try dragging the edges out instead.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Maximize the screen and then immediately shut down the browser. Reopen and it should be OK.

I think that some web pages undo the window position. This very
website was doing it to my browser window for a while last year.
It happened when leaving the page. It is fairly rare, but consistently
happens with some pages.

Good to hear - thanks for popping back to let us know. Windows settings can be a little obstinate at times.
