Do you mean browser windows within Internet Explorer?

If so,

open a page

drag the corners using the mouse until it is full screen size

then close using file, close

That, I think, is how you do it.

If you are opeing any program and not getting full page, then you can right click in the program short cut and choose properties; within the properties is the option to run maximised.

If you're on XP, open two instances of IE, right click the taskbar and select Cascade Windows, close on of the IE windows, maximise the other then close that too. Try it then.

Do you mean Internet Explorer?

drag the window using the corner grab handles (diaganal double headed arrows) to fill the screen, then press and hold CTRL and click the red X to close the window. next time you open the window it will be full screen. or just click the middle icon (top right) each time to maximise the window but i think thats what you are doing now anyway.

you were doing right dragging the window, you just need to press CTRL while you close it.

good luck

i am of course assuming it is a browser window you are reffering to!
if not then as Simsy says, what prog?
