    I have Macbook Air. Suddenlly, 'Word document' I was working on, expanded to occupy
    the whole screen, and it was not possible to reduce the window size in order to open a browser
    window. I 'Force quit the word document'. When I again opened the document it again
    occupied the whole screen. I quit 'Word'. When I again CLicked on 'Word' in applicationc, the same
    full screen window opened again, instead of 'word' offering to stsrt a new window.

    I shall appreciate help in solving this problem. thanks.

    Try moving your mouse to a extreme side of the screen. It should turn into a double sided pointer, although you might not be able to see it. Once at the corner, press and hold the track pad and move the mouse towards the center. That should reduce the screen size.

    Try one of the following:

    press Command-Control-F . or

    Hover your mouse near at the very top of the MAC screen until the menu appears. Click on the Green button and then click on Exit Full Screen Mode.

    You are in Full Screen Mode and just need to get back to normal view

    Thanks. Pressing Command-Control-F worked. You might like to
    know that Apple Tech Support could not provide a solution to
    the problem. Where did you find this methid ?

    Glad to see you have the issue solved. Interesting to note that Apple Tech support couldn't provide the answer.

    Log onto Apple Support Communities. It's amazing what you can find there from your fellow Apple users ;)

    Next time you open a program in full window mode, once you get out of the full mode, click on View on the top. Make sure it's not set to Full Screen Mode..

    :)

    ps Please mark the thread solved
