    Just switched from an old Gateway Win 98SE (that worked just fine until all the new software revisions started to obsolete it even more than it was). Bought a refurbished Dell GX620 with a very fast 3.4 Gig processor. The computer came with a certified version of XP Pro. I have hunted and pecked my way through most basic operating procedures but I can't find the way to expand all the different places I go on the computer. If you're in a window and manually expand it to full screen, the next screen you go to is the small minimized size. Someone told me to go to the next small screen, expand it by pulling out the corners until it reached full screen size and then, instead of hitting the X in the upper right corner, go to the file menu on left side of the screen and hit "exit" to get out of that window. I have tried this on both applications and Web stuff and it doesn't work. Is there a way to do this or am I stuck with having to expand every new window I go into?

    Thanks so much for the tip. My computer has been down for a day and a half so I didn't get a chance to download your program suggestion until just a few minutes ago. It sounds like just what I need to expand my pages. You would think MS would have included that feature in the XP Pro package but then everone knows MS.
