Windows 7: Doc never fills screen when opening

Doc never fills screen when opening

When I open a Windows doc, I always get a small doc window. I have to click the title bar to expand the doc to fill the screen or drag it open by the bottom right corner. I have to do this every time. When I do, it never remains open, always defaults to a small window when opening again. This happens only with docs not web pages.

How can I get a doc to fill my screen automatically without my having to expand it?

Thanks reasoner

How To Open A Program In Minimized, Maximized or Normal Window

Try expanding your window size this way:
Set your size by dragging then hold down the Alt key and press the "X" close button. Next time you open that link it will open the size it was when you closed it!

Just grab it by the top frame and bump it against the top of the screen.

Open it and maximize it. Close it by clicking File>Close or close it by clicking the X while holding Ctrl + Shift keys. You might have to do it a few times to make it learn. Both have been successful for me in the past for windows that open minimized. A Guy
