Default how to avoid constantly maximizing a window?

how to avoid constantly maximizing a window?

windows 7 64 bit

When my PC was new I did'nt have to constanly maximize a window after changing from a full page window, is there a setting to always have a full window?

I don't want to press the F11 function key because then I won't have a toolbar.

if there is a way to always have a full page and a toolbar please provide step by step procedure.
Thanks STB

Hiya steve

maximize Windows Explorer then close it, other windows when opened will follow.

I don't know what windows explorer is or whats it's used for.

can you provide click by click procedure?

1.start
2.all programs
3.accessarys
4.windows explorer

I don't see the screen shot you post.

I see the maximize button you point to w/ red print this is the button I am trying to avoid from constantly pressing. are you saying to
1.log on to net
2.maximize button on top right of desktop then log off the net then logon again.

You only need to do it one time.

From the top ...

1. Start PC
2. Open Windows Explorer
3. Maximize Windows Explorer
4. Close Windows Explorer
5. Now when opening ... Computer, Music, Pictures etc all will be Maximized.

Windows Explorer is the main Windows interface. When you open any folder, it opens in Windows Explorer. If you want all windows to open maximized, follow these steps.
  1. Click Start
  2. Click Documents
  3. Maximize the window
  4. Close the window

Windows Explorer is the interface that shows your folders, files, hard drives/optical drives. In other words, Documents, Pictures, Videos, Libraries, Computer are all opened in the same interface that is Windows Explorer.

If you open up Libraries, you are in Windows Explorer. If that's not clear, I dunno how to explain.


Now that that's out of the way, open Internet Explorer (the big blue E) and Maximize the window (same procedure as above, just use Internet Explorer instead of Windows Explorer). Then close the window. Now open it. It should be maximized.
