Hi mfletch, its the actual webpage that is not filling the browser space. The window is fully expanded however - see pic.

If you have a scroll button on your mouse hold down the Ctrl button and move your mouse forward or backward see if that does any good.
Either that or changing your screen resolution might do it.

Some wew pages (like this one) are a fixed width. The only way you can make them wider is to zoom them (View - Zoom - or as above roll the mouse wheel whilst holding down the Ctrl key).

Changing your screen resolution is not a great way, as pages are different widths, and it affects everything else you have on the screen, not just web pages.

Some sites are designed to expand to fill the browser screen - but this means the page can look very different on different width screens, so many designers do not like to do it this way.
