Windows 7: Setting file select window size

Setting file select window size

When opening a file in 2010 MEP in Win 7 the window is fairly small and only a few files are visible. I have to either make the window larger every time or scroll through a small window. Does anyone know how to set the window so that it opens large (almost full screen) by default?

Next time it opens small, drag the sides of the window (left, right, top, bottom) to enlarge that window. Then it will most likely open in the size you set it next time.

Another trick is to grab the window by the top frame and bump it against the top of the screen. That will maximize it.
