Thumbnails and large window

I have 2 questions

1. how do you make thumbnails in the file, where there is a little box with a generic scene?

2. how do you make a large window at the start of a program? in xp you could right click and it gave you a choice of windows if you wished..I want all windows to open in the large size
Thanks,
Kas

Just learned a little trick from this forum. If a page opens less than full size, make it full size. Then click on the X, to close, while holding down the alt key. Not 100% but it is a big help.

In question 1 are you speaking of icons on the desktop, or am I misunderstanding you?

Thanks for the input...I tried the tip and it did work...where the problem happens is windows mail in the address section, when you select a contact, you cannot see the bottom of the page unless you make a full page at the top...this not a big deal I just thought there might be a way to make a full, I will have to click with my mouse at the full page icon,
Thanks again

Not sure if this is what you are talking about, but this box should be unchecked for thumbnails.
