my 'documents' file list: open as larger window?


When opening my 'documents' file list the window needs to be resized--i.e., made larger--to read properly.

Q: is there a way to resize it and then open larger from then on as the new default size?

thank you

Hi deantaylor

Open My documents folder expand to full screen using the middle of the 3 page buttons my 'documents' file list: open as larger window?-capture.jpg and then just close as normal. Windows should remember your page size automatically.

Hello Dean,

In addition, you could also manually drag the border (left click on border when pointer turns to double arrow and hold, then drag) of the window to size it how you like as well. Windows will open the same size as they were last closed by default.

Hope this helps,
