Windows 7: Screen Size problems

Screen Size problems


I use Firefox, and it's page fits on my Desktop quite well when it opens.

Also, I can move it around by grabbing the bar on the top. And can re-size O.K. when I want.

But for my MS WORD and Excel, they open up and totally take up the entire visible screen.
Also, I cannot do any dragging by trying to grab the top bar.

If I go to minimize by clicking on the "-" button on the top right, the screen totally disappears.

Any thoughts on how to have Word and Excel, and a few others, just open up so that they don't take up all
the real estate, and that I can re-size, and also how to be able to grab them to move around
and re-position ?

Next time you open Word or Excel, double click on the Title Bar, this toggles between full screen and the re-sizable window.

IF your using office 2013 you might be in read mode.

To exit read mode:

Turn off reading layout view

Do one of the following:

Return to print layout or normal view: On the Reading Layout toolbar, click Close Button image.
NOTE You can also press ESC or ALT+C to exit reading layout view.

Prevent reading layout view from opening automatically when you receive a Word document in e-mail: On the Tools menu, click Options, click the General tab, and then clear the Allow starting in Reading Layout check box.
