Windows 7: Pages Not Filling out my full Screen

To bring up an old topic, I'll use Runescape as an example of my screen size, normally, the screen will be filled out to this size, with the toolbar along the side filling most of the page and the runescape screen itself being a lot larger.

This is my screen;

Hello again, since your last post was 3 weeks ago you may want to mark this thread as unsolved, top right of your poasts.

This looks like a setting within Runescape? Maybe windowed or full-screen. Is this online or from another player's server?

See how it displays when you press F11 in the game.

Thanks, now marked as unsolved.
I wasn't really talking about the runescape screen, more of the toolbars, that is with swiftkit, a client for runescape so it's not actually on a web browser. I was talking about mainly the size of the toolbars, as you can see there is a noticeable difference between the two images, the first picture's screen fits much more closer, this is what everything used to be like with windows xp, since upgrading to 7 everything is more gapped apart and shrunken in a way. All of my programs are this way.

OK. It appears you have a custom theme installed? Some of them aren't written well and cause many problems.
Go to your graphics device support page and download the latest and correct drivers for you Win7, then...
Try uninstalling your graphics drivers and devices, reboot. Use Driver Sweeper.

Can't say I had a custom theme on, a personally edited one being I changed the colour of the task bar.
I've tried everything, I guess I am just going to have to get used to this configuration, thanks very much for the help, Brittion, and everyone else. It just looks so irregular and small, on windows xp it utilized all the screen, filling up as much space as possible, 7 just feels big with empty areas.

You're welcome.
Two more things to try.
1.See if there is an updated driver or firmware for your monitor, or uninstall it and let Windows install its generic one.

2.Go to msconfig, startup, see what is starting. Find each one in your program folder, Right click>Properties, and see if it has a Run in XXX x XXX resolution setting. If so, uncheck that or change to your monitor's native res setting.

Do you have a new larger monitor then you did with Windows XP?
Because what I am seeing in your screenshots is normal for a widescreen display. (1920x1080)
