Screen size on opening

Can anyone please tell me why every time I open a web site, I always get a half size screen rather than a full one, see screen shot for example.

When I see that happen I will resize it as I want then hold down the Ctrl key while clicking Close or the X. Sometimes takes a couple of tries to get Windows to 'learn' it.

That's basic Windows functions, move the mouse pointer to any edge or corner of the window and when the pointer changes to an arrow just click and drag as desired. Or click the Maximize icon [middle] in the upper right corner to get it full size [not the same as Full Screen].
And do yourself a favor and get a Windows 7 for Dummies book, quite good reading in spite of the title.

Hi,
No need for a book... you joined SevenForums we're an open book
Windows snap,

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Arrange-windows-side-by-side-on-the-desktop-using-Snap

I personally would stay away from the Maximize button and simply resize and position the window and close it normally,
Re-open and windows will remember the size,
Cheers.

Possibly this post from Kari will help you figure out what the prior posted videos didn't :/

The Index on page 413 under "windows on desktop" shows "size, changing" and lists pages 59 and 66-68

Web Page opening about 3/4 size
Internet explorer 11 and the Bing search page will only open about 3/4 of the page when I use a shortcut, but when I type www.bing.com in the search it opens just fine. I have had this problem with 5 other pc"s and the only way I could cure it was to use Firefox which I prefer not to.
