Windows 7: Opening Desktop Icons in Full Screen

Opening Desktop Icons in Full Screen

The icons I save on the desktop open only in half display. Then I have to maximize. In WinXP you expand once and that solves it. What about Windows 7?

Hello Budburn,

Usually they will open the same way as they were last closed.

If these are shortcuts, then you might right click on one, click Properties and Shortcut tab, select "Maximized" for the Run option, and click on Ok to see if that may help.

Opening Icons in full screen

The best way I have found is open the icon in half or small screen and hit the f11 key. It will open to full screen but hides the tool bar. put the curser on the top of the page and they will re-appear.
