Windows 7: how do i make my notepad docs open in full screen rather than half

12 Aug 2012   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit

There has been a lot written about how to make Notepad Text files open maximised but none of the suggestions work for me. I have Notepad itself set to open maximised using the shortcut's properties page and this works fine. However, no matter what means I use to close the maximised file (File>Exit, the cross in the top right corner or Alt+F4) it always opens next time occupying a third of the screen! Creating a shortcut for each text file and editing its Properties to open maximised is not a realistic option.

I"m using Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit.

Anyone else having the same problem? Anyone know the solution?
