Hi - anyone out there capable of providing the reason/solution to the problem of when I click on a new page or link it does not open in full page - it opens in either half/quater page and I then have to click on maximise button to create full page.

Which Browser? With IE7 or Later, Maybe....
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / May 17, 2009 4:21 AM PDT could try "tabbed browsing" which is available in Internet Explorer 7 or later, Firefox, etc.

Or, tried this yet to make the window "almost" maximized..:

Open IE and click on any link. {b]Close the original window.

Now size the new window to full-screen by dragging the edges, *not* by hitting the maximise button. Now close the window.

Unfortunately, you've not told us which operating system or browser you are concerned with.

Hope this helps.

Assuming you use IE ...

(but it might work for Firefox or Opera also) it's simple to learn the program your preference for the size of a new window:
I've read variants telling you to keep shift pressed when closing the window, but it isn't mentioned here.

And, by the way, don't you use a browser that uses tabs? Once you maximized the screen (and you can easily run the program maximized from the shortcut), new tabs are just as full-screen as old tabs. Quite easy.

1. Click on the blue ribbon on top of your browser.
2. Drag the window so the upper left corner is in the upper left of your
3. Now click on the lower right corner of your browser window and drag it
down to the lower right corner of your monitor.
4. Close the broswer window.
5. Open a new window.

The new window should be in full screen mode.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
