Dear Computer Lady,
Hi and thanks for the great newsletter. My question is this:
I had, had my browser windows maximized, so that every time I opened one, it was maximized without having to click on the maximize button.
For some reason, now they won’t do that and I can’t figure out what I changed to make it do that. They are all smaller now and I have to hit the max. button or increase with the arrows.
Can you help? Thanks, Susan
Your problem seems to be a fairly common one, and there is no official fix for this problem.
What I do have for you is a little trick that seems to work most of the time.
Open your browser, maximize it so that the window is the way you want it, then hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard while you close the window.
Repeat this process several times until the browser opens in the maximized position. It might take just a few times, but it might take a lot of times.
This trick almost always works.
