Retaining Windows Size
Dell Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E7500 Computer
Inspirion 545s 00
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
750GB Hard Drive
Earlier this evening I had about 6 windows open all checked with "SHOW SIDE BY SIDE." Since then, I've been unable to get many of my windows to open back to the maximized view. I clicked on that option again thinking it would no longer show things side by side.
Now windows open in the top part of the monitor screen in the top 1/4 horizontally. Hope that makes sense. When I had XP, I was able to resize the screen manually, hold the control key down, and left click on the red X. When reopening, the screens would be maximized.
How can I get my screens back to opening full screen mode rather than in the top 1/4 and only seeing about 3 inches downward? I would prefer not to have to maximize each and every screen.
This was not an issue until I had the 6 windows side by side this evening. I've used the side by side option before but only for 2 windows to be horizontallly side by side, not 6. Did it confuse the pc (LOL)?
Thanks for any help,

Thanks for your responses - I appreciate that!
I tried all of the above to no avail; however, as the evening wore on last night, it seems like they "finally" went back in place automatically. Weird!! Must be a Windows 7 thing (LOL)! I just didn't like having to resize the screen each time I opened something different. Thanks again.
