From Girrock,

Hi, Could anyone tell me how to get Freecell to fully maximize so as to fill the whole screen. When I maximize it using the normal button it only fills a little over half the screen,left to right. Tiling windows horizontally doesn't work and neither does trying to drag the sides or corners.

You can't maximise Free Cell to cover whole screen but you can make the window bigger by pointing to the bottom righthand side of the window and when your pointer turns into a double headed arrow hold your left button down and drag the corner of the window diagonally until it reaches a size to suit.

An eXtract from Anatomy of a Window

One of the most visible characteristics that identifies a window is its size. This allows the operating system to manage the available space on the screen and to know how much space each application is using. Some windows have a fixed size while the size of others can change. This aspect is controlled by both the operating system and the programmer who created the window. If the window's size can be changed by you, the window is said to be resizable. Once again, keep in mind that it is the programmer, in accordance with the operating system, who decided whether a window can be resized (this means that the person who created a window had the ability to make sure that the window would never be resized). A programmer can also decide how much a window can be resized by setting the minimum and maximum dimensions. For example, you cannot enlarge the FreeCell application beyond the maximum width of 8 cards:
