outlook express emails open minimised

How do I get outlook express to automatically open email full screen, instead of as a narrow band? (that view that's between minimize and maximize, if you see what I mean).
It's really irritating and must surely be an easy thing to fix.


(If it's relevant, my email folder location is in a folder in my documents, because it's easier to find, and to back up with the rest of my documents)

Open one of your emails, and place the cursor on one corner of the window. The cursor will become a double-headed diagonal, and you can then drag the window to whatever size you wish. Remember that you can use the top title bar to move the window around, and in this way you should be able to create a maximum window. Thereafter your emails should all open full screen.

You can put your cursor on any corner or any side of a window and when it changes to a double-headed arrow you can move that corner or side
