i only got it today as my last pc bit the dust, i am having trouble getting explorer to open full size, it was a piece of cake on xp now how?

if you mean internet explorer open it by dragging until about an inch gap around the sides.then close and reopen and drag a bit bigger each time.i know it sounds odd but thats how i had to do it.

will try, thanks for responding

just to add,thats the way i had to do it if i didn't want it maximized but full screen if that makes sense.

i take your point, i now have it opening ok except when i click a link (like this message in my mail) also icons have now developed a pointed arrow as a shortcut?

when you click a link have you tried dragging again to enlarge and see if it opens how you want it too the next time,my desktop icons have arrows on them except recycle bin.

actually the arrows thing may just be a feature that has carried over from vista,there are ways to get rid if these are the arrows click here

sorry for delay in reply i have tried dragging and it of no use, if i click expand it is ok but does not remember it for future, the arrows thing suddenly happened yesterday while trying to resolve other issues.

in addition have just downloaded 28 updates and now icons have no pics?


  johnnyrocker 19:52 30 Mar 2010

any ideas please?
