Windows opens in small size

by Alan C. / September 17, 2004 1:36 PM PDT

When I open a window program, I get a small screen and always have to hit the enlarge to full screen icon. Is there a way to always open the screen to full size?

If you open it from a shortcut, right click on the shortcut (or the icon), choose properties, and choose how to run it: normal, minimized or maximized. Then OK and it should work.

If you open it by clicking on an associated file (such as running Word by clicking on a document, or opening a new window in IE by clicking on a link) it's a different story and, I think, even different for each program involved. Then you'd better tell what programs you mean.

Hope this helps.

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?
