Windows 7: Open new window in full screen?

Open new window in full screen?

It's probably something simple but I haven't found it yet. Any way to set ALL new windows to full screen rather than the standard 1/3rd screen?

Hello Joe,

Windows 7 remembers the size and position of all Windows Explorer windows for what the last window was closed as. You can open a Windows Explorer windows, maximize it, then close it. All windows will open maximized after that as long as you close them while maximized as well.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Will doing this to Windows Explorer also affect things like Paint, Notepad, etc?

Yes, but usually not with 3rd party programs though.

Hi Brink, Unlike Vista, 7 does this with all my programs.

Strange, it does for all the included features in Windows 7 for me as well, but it doesn't for CCleaner, Auslogics Disk Cleaner, or any 3rd party programs.

If I click on any shortcut I've saved to the desktop it opens to a small window every time no matter how many times I've opened and expanded it. It's not being saved as full size. Kind of annoying.

Joe,

What are some of the shortcuts for? This way we can see if others with the same program or file shortcuts see the same thing.
