Hello, when I sign on the home page fills the whole screen. my question is when I click on a link or a marked favorite it always opens with a smaller size window and always have to use the middle box on the top of the frame to enlarge it to fill the screen. is there a way that I can make each place I visit the same size or do I just have to use the method that I have always used?

I could have sworn before my teenager got to my computer that each page I would open would open full screen.

I hope I am making myself clear. lol the box is on the top right screen between _ x

thank you for helping me, I figure its just a quick fix

lesson learned noooooooo you cant use my computer anymore!!! kids grrrr lol

Most program windows are set to remember what size the window was the next time you open it. So click a link. Maximize the window. Close the window. Try again.

I open windows in tabs, so the windows all open to the same size.

Yup, you make total sense, one of those been-there-done-that-bought-the-tshirt thing for me. The link elnina gave gives the solution that worked for me (the one richc46 suggests) -- but in general only and not in all cases. For example, no matter what I do, no link I click in a city-data post will be maximized. But at least now any bookmarked favorite I click will be maximized.
