Welcome Oliver

You have to open them full window. Go to each file, right click go to properties then run maximized. This should work

Need more profound solution

Sorry, but this is crazy. I am not going to do that for ALL my files. There should be something missing at the Options or Preferences of Windows 7 that I'm unaware of.
Thanks!

Please does anyone know why my files are opened in the taskbar instead of being open at the screen? Thanks

Hello Oliver,

See if resetting the folder view settings back to default may help.

If not, then as a test create a new administrator account to see if they open properly in it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thank you Brink.
I am afraid of touching the registry... but well I trust in you.
I was able to discover exactly what my problem is: I can open the first file of Word, etc., or a first time program. The second time is opened minimized.

Strange, usually they will open how it was the last time it was closed.

I mean, the other file is still opened (or not necessarily) and a new one is opened of the same program (for example Word) but minimized.

I still did not try what you said of resetting the folder views. Should I try the "first option" that you mentioned there?

Or should I try first going through the repair option of the original CD?
I am very much thankful for your help. I am not a computer guy and I am already very frustrated with this issue of W7.

Oliver,

I would try opening the file first, set how you want the window to be sized, then close it. Afterwards see if they all open the same way.

If not, then try OPTION ONE to reset the folder views, and the above again.

If still not, then create a new administrator account as a test to see if it works in it.

Brink,
Thanks again for your help.
I tried what you mentioned in your first paragraph, and it did not work.

Then I tried what you mentioned in your second paragraph, and it did not work.

Finally, I tried what you mentioned in your third paragraph, and it seems to be working ok. It seems so far that. In case that works, I really don't want to create a new administrator account, that would a lot of time to built in the configuration of programs, etc. A lot of work customizing again my programs, etc. Could I fix the problem in my current administrator account? Trying "option" two or three at your web page or any other simpler way?
Thanks.
