Just had a phone call from son.When he installs a game it only opens in small window,he says about maybe 4x4"any ideas anyone?

May help if we know what game and operating system as well as graphics card.
That aside,if his card is up to it he should be able to go into either options ," settings" or "system" , on the menu screen and in the graphics option it should have an option for "full screen",which you should check that it says yes.

Havent solved the problem yet.Its a very old laptop,consequently everything else is old in it.The games played are only small ie those found on Reflexive Arcade.Unless anyone else has any thoughts,will give up.
