Pages Not Filling out my full Screen

Hey guys, sorry if this is in the incorrect area but I was unsure as to where it belonged. I just recently upgraded from windows XP and notice something quite irritating that I cannot seem to find a solution too. The content within my browser is small and it leaves large gaps on the sides of my page, for example,



I've played with my screen resolution, I've also tried holding in ctrl and using my mouse scroll to see if it was the problem but to no avail.

The line inside the red box shows what would be the ending of the page on windows xp, the page would only show up to that part of the background and all the content would be zoomed & fitted to match.

If you did an "upgrade install", you can get all kinds of strange problems. I suggest you do a "clean install" instead.

Do you have a new larger monitor then you did with Windows XP?
Because what I am seeing in your screenshots is normal for a widescreen display. (1920x1080)

The below attachment is how the default theme looks for me. (1920x1200)

I suppose if having a larger monitor is bothering you, send it to me and reconnect your old monitor.

Here is Wide black SF theme, all are at the bottom of each page for us.

The web page decides how it is displayed depending on how it is coded, it's not a Win7 nor display issue. try looking at these:
Hotmail
Newegg
Google
NASCAR.com
IP Tracer
UPS
Here some are full window, some are less and some are lesser then others. some are on the left while some are centered.



Maybe OP has left the building.

Just hit Ctrl + until you're happy with the fit. What you're seeing is normal behavior.
