full screen in ie11 to full browser only in win 8.1

Q: full screen in ie11 to full browser only in win 8.1

So I have been using ie 11 since coming to win 8, just not a google fan. But my concern is that sometimes when going to full screen mode I notice that on some sites screen will only go to full browser view rather than blowing out to all 4 corners of my screen. I rather like that, you can increase screen size and still have access to the desktop, but I cannot find a way to switch that, is it possible to make the browser always go to full browser size not full screen ? Win 8.1 64bit not a metro user

Thanks in advance for thoughts

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I belong to a forum where we sometimes post a music video, and I never had problems until a couple of days ago seeing a video that was downloaded to the forum in full-screen mode.

It happens in IE11 and Edge browsers, and just started. A couple of other people are having the same problems. The error message actually blocks the title of the video, so you can't read who it is.

Any idea how to go in these browsers and change the permissions to view full screen for YouTube videos even if they're on another site? On YouTube, the full screen works fine.

I haven't changed any settings at all in the last couple of days. Any advice appreciated.

Hi all,
Been having a few computer troubles, last couple of days. Up until now, I have never had a computer crash since building my machine. Occasionally I've had to force-quit a program, but never random crashes.

I've had 6 in the last day or so, though. And none of them have happened with a BSoD. The last one to happen was while watching a movie. I Ctrl+Alt+Del'd and it got stuck showing a message "preparing security options..." with the time-circle(?), but never progressed past that point.

They all seem to happen at random, regardless of what I do. When playing full-screen games, watching full-screen movies, or even just sitting idling. I've tried updating my MOBO BiOS, my gfx driver, tried taking out and setting the RAM again, and even ran a full-system scan with both anti-virus and with CCleaner.

I'm afraid I'm not sure what I should do.

I tried to upload the files from the SF_Diagnostic_Tool, but got a message saying I didn't have the correct Security Token?

If there's any other information that you require of me, please don't hesitate to ask.

A:Computer crashes randomly; full-screen games, full screen movies

Put the files on Dropbox or Skydrive and post a link here. Will have a look

How can I stop web pages from expanding my browser

resize my web browser because some internet site

Win XP Pro

Most of us use Firefox, not IE. With Firefox, you can get an add-on called NoScript. This program disables scripting (which is the cause of your problem) on all pages unless specifically allowed by you. The result: No page does anything without your explicit permission.

Hi,Running Windows 7 RTM x64 on both my PC at home and my workstation at work.My PC at home has a square monitor and my work PC has a widescreen monitor.I used webapps (citrix) from home to get into work environment then remoted to my workstation.Since doing that, when I am physically at the workstation (at work), I can no longer remote desktop to servers in full screen mode.  Instead, it does a smaller window with "full screen settings".  Basically the full screen remote desktop is about 3/4 size of the monitor, not 100%.Any help appreciated.-thanks

Hello all,

I've been having a very annoying problem for quite a while now. When I play games or use any sort of full screen program, it refuse to stay in full screen and flickers to the desktop after a 10-30 minute period...I'm aware this is probably another program trying to take control, but I can't seem to pin it down. I've tried disabling startup programs through task manager and I've also tried ending background process, with no success.

Can someone please advise how to troubleshoot this issue, or let me know an easier way to find out what is going on...

It had happen before, I went to plugins and disabled the latest version of flash player. Three days ago I uninstalled and re-installed Chrome, the full screen issue is back, the flash player is 11.9.900.117. There's two of them, same number, one with periods and one with commas.

For some reason, starting this morning, any time I open a game in full screen mode, I get a full freeze. No mouse movement, Ctrl+Alt+Del / Ctrl+Shift+Esc / Alt+F4 / Alt+Tab do nothing, and the ultimate test, toggling capslock doesn't change the light on the keyboard. Only a hard reboot remedies the problem.

I'm convinced it's not a video card issue simply because if I start the same games in windowed mode, they run perfectly fine. I updated to Catalyst 10.10d yesterday, but the problem didn't occur until today, so I'm not entirely sure if they are related. Google's turned up nothing, at any rate, and I don't want to go through the effort of a full driver wipe until I'm sure it's the problem.

Something that troubles me a little: Fallout New Vegas randomly started detecting my Radeon 3870s as a GeForce 7900. It did not do this originally. Fallout 3 and Oblivion still detect it properly, however.

This problem happens in all games I've tried, across multiple engines, including several Source games, several Gamebryo games, and a few other random games. This is not a BSOD issue, it simply freezes with a black screen. My drivers, DirectX and Windows are all completely up to date.

Edit: Forgot to include customary dxdiag info.

A:IE 7 browser does not load to full screen?

If you want Internet Explore to open full-size when you start it up, you must first start IE. Then maximize the window. Now click File, then Close. Now restart IE, and it should start up in a full-sized window. If half of the window is off the screen when you start a program, bring the window to the location you want and then click File and then Close, and it will re-open in this position the next time.

Changing the size of windows that appear when you click on an Internet link takes a few more steps.

Open Internet Explorer. Now open another instance of Internet Explorer so that you have two running at the same time. In the second one, right-click a link and select Open In New Window. If the new window does not start in full screen, simply resize the window by dragging the edges out to the sides of the screen. Do not use the max button.

Close the first window by selecting File, then Close. Now close the window you just made full size. But close it by holding down the Control key and selecting File, then Close. Do not release the Control key until the window is closed.

Now close the last Internet Explorer window. If you do this right, the settings will stick. You may or may not have to reboot, depending on your operating system

So, I'm trying to make this old computer limp along and serve as a home theater PC. Having a problem I hope you can help with.

I've tried viewing videos on the internet in full screen mode and it's not working. I've tried it with YouTube videos, Xfinity videos and the live stream of the Eagle's Nest from Decorah Iowa. No online videos seem to work in full screen. They work just fine with the regular view, but as soon as I hit that full screen button, the screen goes blank and I can just hear the video.

I've also tried it with Firefox (what I prefer to use), Internet Explorer and Chrome. No browser works.

I've connected the PC to my TV using S-Video.

Here's the specs I THINK you'll need, let me know if you need more.

Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 3
NVIDIA GeForce MX 420 video card
S-Video Connection
Firefox version 3.6.13
The only "add-ons" to the Firefox currently are the extension Norton IPS and Norton Toolbar

It's all a fresh install of Windows for the most part. Installed a few thing here or there after the fresh install. The only thing I installed that I think might have an effect on this is VLC.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I work 8-5 Central time, so I won't have access to my computer then, but any other time, I'll be checking up to see if there's any new help ideas.

Please help me! My wife has mocked my HTPC idea from the get go and I need to get it up and running!

A:[SOLVED] Full Screen Not Working from any Browser

First, I would upgrade your Firefox. You are quite out of date. If you don't want version 4 yet, update to 3.6.16 (I think that's the latest). It probably won't help this problem but there have been bug fixes and security patches. It's always a good idea to keep your browser as up to date as possible.

I'll leave the rest to someone else, but if you could give us all of the specs on your system that would help. Also, is this a desktop or a laptop?

For a couple of weeks now, iv had this problem where ill have a firefox browser open full screen, and ill want to move it to my second monitor(i have two monitors). So ill move the mouse to the top, left click and hold then try and drag the window. Sometimes it moves fine, but often it fights against me going back to it's original full screen state(as soon as i pull it away from being full screen, it goes back to full screen again).

As you can imagine, this is quite irritating but not super important(I can just double click it to shrink the window and then move it that way). Just wondered if anyone had experienced this, or knows how to cure it?

"For the past couple of weeks my open windows (all of them, browser windows and regular folders) have been going nuts, alternating between full screen and normal as if someone is pressing the f11 key over and over rapidly. Hitting f11 or the space bar key will sometimes stop the craziness long enough for me to type an address or click an icon, but it starts up again moments later making the computer virtually unusable. I'm down to maybe 2 or 3 hours a day where this doesn't happen at all, and then without my pressing any keys or doing anything different there we go again. BTW, the f11 key doesn't seem to be stuck."

This was posted on the site a while ago with no answer posted. I have been having the exact same problem, though not a severe as described above. Also the esc. key exits full screen. Trendmicro Titanium can't pick up any virus or other threat. I have also updated all of my windows files (Win 7). I have also defragmented my hard disc. I tried running a trendmicro scan in safe mode, but I had an error saying I had to run in normal mode to do a system scan.

Anyone else having this problem?

I was having several issues so I did a full reset of Windows 8.1 (that was a nightmare). When I went to update, it offered me Windows 10. I bit the bullet and did it. The exact same thing happened this time as the first time (which is why I reverted back to 8.1).

On the desktop, if I place icons to either side or top, they're half off the screen. The taskbar is messed up too. I put Classic Shell back in so that I have a start menu more in tune with Windows 7. Now I can only see a sliver of the start button. The clock is half off the screen. If I choose to show icons on the taskbar, they are below the taskbar. Same goes for icons in the quick launch bar.

I didn't have this problem with 8.

Any menu that's taller than the screen I can't see and there's no scroll to see the upper end. If I maximize the brower, the minimize, maximize and close buttons are off the screen.

I'm using the recommended screen resolution. 1920x1080. I'm using a 32" 720p TV as my monitor. It's plugged in with an HDMI cable. There are no settings to change the display in the TV.

Screen shot? Yeah right. When I do a screen shot, it shows everything as it should look, not what I'm actually seeing.

Ok what is going on here is your screen is set to a smaller size in game then in windows.
If you check your windows settings you will see something like 1440x900 then look at the setting in game it may end up being 800x600. See the difference.
Also what game are you trying to play, I know that most steam games you need to enable the widescreen support in game then you can change the resolution to the correct size for your screen.

Hi guys, sorry if this is the wrong section - I couldn't find a dedicated video section. Anyway:

Firstly, I'm running a bug free and competent AMD Phenom II x6 machine with an ATI 6870 and 8 gigs of ram. Hard drives have plenty of space and there aren't any hardware faults. Everything tends to run fine.

Since I installed Silverlight to use LoveFilm streaming, though, fullscreen viewing inexplicably stutters!

Solutions tried:Reinstall GPU driver (cleaning it with driver sweeper, CC cleaner etc)
Reinstall Silverlight
Uninstall windows update that installed original silverlight
Reinstalled it again
Turned off any custom video settings in the ATI Catalyst
Tried using IE, FireFox (currently use chrome)
Tried increasing amount of space Silverlight can use
Tried turning hardware acceleration on in the Silverlight options

I can't think of anything else. It doesn't matter if the film or TV show is HD or SD, full screen will stutter. My native resolution is 1920x1080, as per, and my refresh rate is 60hz. No clashes there.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

now with it set at a resolution that isnt your monitors default will appear like this:

to stop this from happening, simply find out what your default resolution is for your monitor, and set the application resolution to this.

if you cannot find anywhere to set the default resolution, you can have full screen by reading through the manual for the monitor, there will be an option to remove the aspect ratio scaling on the monitor somewhere if you cant set it on windows.

I am using Windows Internet Explorer XP - Version 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803_2158.

Recently I've noticed that I cannot view in full screen anymore. Let me explain. I created a website that lets a user enter their name and social # and then choose a test in 1 of 3 languages. Once you choose a language, a new browser window opens and the test/information is displayed in this new window.

Since end of last year, it worked correctly. A new browser window would open and it would be in full screen mode. You could NOT see the very top of the page - where it gives you the page title, and the options to close the window, or minimize/expand it.

Now, all of a sudden, it displays all that information - title, close option etc. Does anyone know why this is? And how I can put it back to being full screen?

FYI - I think this may have something to do with a service pack upgrade within the last couple weeks but am not positive. Also, I know that lots of people were having issues with the Service Pack 2 and all the bugs.

Can anyone shed any light on this issue and what I can do to fix it?

I can still access files on the disk, just not write to it, although the problem when it is occurring seems to be intermittent.

The disks aren't full and have over 10% free. When I restart Windows the problem goes away.

I'm guessing there is something wrong with the disk?

Any ideas on how to check for errors/problems or solve this?

When i open the internet the browser is smaller than full screen.
How do i make it so it opens full screen each time?

A:Full size browser

Is the browser launched from a shortcut, such as one on the taskbar? If so, right click on the shortcut and select Properties. Look at the "Run" field and ensure "maximized" is selected.

You can also try maximizing the window manually, then holding the ctrl key when closing it. It should open maximized the next time, but this does not always hold up for long.

When i open the internet the browser is smaller than full screen.
How do i make it so it opens full screen each time?

A:Opening a browser at full size

Problem: When Internet Explorer opens it can range in size anywhere from that of a postage stamp to almost filling the screen. Clicking the maximize button works for that particular window but the next time you open IE the same situation repeats.
Solution: The default behavior for Internet Explorer is to open at the same size it was at the last time it was closed. While the default does apply in many cases it's not always consistent. Try the following workaround.
• Open a single Internet Explorer window to the smaller size.
• Drag the corners of the window until it completely fills the screen. Do not use the maximize button to enlarge the window.
• Hold down the Ctrl key, keep it depressed, and using the mouse click File and then Exit on the menu bar. Do not use the "X" in the upper right corner to close the window.
• Internet Explorer should now open in a full window.
• If it still opens to a smaller size repeat the above instructions, substituting the "Shift" key for the "Ctrl" key.

The brown area on top is my desktop background and the area coverage from my browser is already max from what you can see. I can't seems to be able to drag it and cover the the brown area to make it fully fit my screen. It doesn't only affect my browser but to the rest of my applications as well.

What's wrong with my system or is there any settings I need to look into it?

A:Can't stretch browser to full height

Do you have this issue in a particular website? or in different websites?

I know this is a stupid question, but how can I start IE7 in full page and not a reduced window. When I start the browser it starts small and I have to hit the page button in the upper right hand corner. Please don't laugh.

A:Starting Browser in Full Page

I don't use IE7 but in IE6.
Close all browser windows except one.
Make the page the way you want it and close IE.
It sticks to the last known close.

When I bring up 'computer" (Windows + E) I've noticed that the bar graph showing how relatively full an external hard drive is is colored blue-green. But whenever there is less than 10 percent of the drive space free that bar turns red.

That made some sense for a drive with a few hundred gigabytes (although I don't understand the technical reasons) because I assume there needs to be a minimum amount of free space for the system to be able to do whatever manipulation of those files might be required, such as defragmenting the drive (something I've never done in decades).

However with a 4 terabyte drive the system says it is over 90 percent full when there is still over 350 gigabytes still available. That's a huge amount of space, as big as some drive C's on some computers, so I've been ignoring the red bar, but still keeping an eye on those hard drives that have it.

Does anyone have information on how much space should really be left unused on a hard drive? I hate to overfill a drive, yet also don't see the point in pulling a drive for storage with 200 or 300 gigabytes still available on it. Any advice (with sound reasons) appreciated.

A:How full is too full for a hard drive?

Defrag is done automatically when the PC is idle in Windows 7, you can also start it manually of course.

There is a tutorial or some such I remember seeing here to adjust when the bar turns red. I will try to find it.

Edit: Here it is low disc space partition color

It is not exactly setting the %, but disabling the coloring all together though. Can't find an exact answer to your question though. See if you will like the above solution.

Hi there,
When I click on a link within a web-page, the new page normally opens to full-size. Recently however, when I click a link, only the tiny tool-bar with the "increase-size", "decrease-size" and "close-page" buttons appears, and I have to then manually enlarge the page.

Would anyone know how I can rectify this?

Thanks heaps for your help!

A:Browser windows don't open to full size

Hi sneak

When the second browser opens that is too small, drag the window until it fills your screen.
Then close the FIRST browser, then close the SECOND browser you have modified.
Windows should remember the settings for the browser that is closed LAST.

Let us know if that works for you or not.

You know the deal. You've collected tons of bookmarks over the years. Created a beautifully curated knowledge bank, and then one day you look up a bookmark, and the page it refers to is not there any more (and instead you see an ad by GoDaddy asking if you'd like to buy the domain).

For instance, I have a bookmark to an explanation of C pointers that's hosted on someone's home server. It's absolutely the best explanation of C pointers out there. And yes, I've downloaded the relevant pages as HTML files. But downloading HTML files for each and every one of my thousands of bookmarks will be really tedious, and very difficult to sift through later on.

It would be really nice if I could find a mechanism whereby: when I bookmark a page, a cache of the page is backed-up somewhere. So that, in future if I try to access that page, and the page is gone, I can use the same bookmark (and perhaps a combination of a keyboard shortcut) to refer to the cached backed-up version.

In fact, given the large number of super-smart programmers out there who I'm sure have faced the same issue, I'm 100% sure there is such a mechanism out there.

What would you recommend?

(I've found a single option called Diigo, but it's a premium feature and needs to be paid for. I would love to hear feedback if anyone's used it.)

(And yes, Internet Archive works in a pinch, but someone can ask IA to remove its cache of that page.)

A:How can I cache the full pages for all my browser bookmarks?

I did it a while ago with HTTrack. You need to import a list of links, one line per link, and if you just want the bookmarked ones, turn off site crawling.

I'v been getting frequent BSOD almost everyday, that is when everytime I had my firefox or internet explorer webrowser on. atikmpag.sys shows up in bsod screen everytime, which i'm assuming there may be a problem with the ATI graphic driver. I've tried nearly everything including hardware maintenence, updating gpu driver, reinstalling, memory test, virus scan, tweaking gpu setting and even formatting and reinstalling my OS but it still happens. I'm not sure if its coincidence but after I removed the afterburner (gpu monitoring software for msi radeon) the BSOD now happens less frequent.

Here is my Spec:

OS: Windows 7 64 bit (x64) Own built desktop with OEM OS Software.
Age of OS: 3 years
Age of Hardware: 3 years old CPU, PSU, Motherboard, Soundcard and Hard drive. couple months old ram sticks and gpu.

CPU: AMD Athlone II Quadcore 3 GH
PSU: Seasonic AX-750
Motherboard: ASUS M4N98TO EVO
GPU: MSI Twin Frozer III Radeon 6950 1gb
HDD: Western Digital 1TB Blue Label

I'd really appreciate for solution and support because its been going on for more than a month :
