    What do I have to so that things open with a full screen. It's a pain to have to enlarge every screen we look at.
    Help WILL be appreciated.

    This is a niggling issue with Windows. :)

    What I do for applications like IE is to open a single instance windowed (not full screen), and then resize it to fill the screen. Close that instance, and next time it'll open up "almost full screen". :)

    Two other approaches that usually work:

    If it is a shortcut that launches the screen, right click on the shortcut and select Properties . . in the Run line . . select Maximized.

    If you maximize a screen and then close using the File . . Close ( or Exit ) it will usually open in that state the next time.

    Like JohnWill said . . it is a niggling problem and these sometimes work, and sometimes don't.

    Don't make it too small or your "pop-up" blocker will catch it.
