    Just started setting up a new Dell notebook. Many things, such as My Computer etc. open in small windows when I click on them. I can manually drag the sides to resize to full screen, but when I close and re-open, it's back to small window.

    I keep thinking I remember reading that there is some quick fix for this. Anybody know what it is?

    I think you can right click on the icon you want to open and select properties. Then there's a box were you can set what kind of window you want it to run in when you open it, i.e. normal, maximized, minimized.
