A:window within window opens small

If you are talking about a program that uses MDI child windows (like many of the Office applications), the "small" (child) windows usually have their own minimize/maximize/close controls in the top-right corner. You can also try double-clicking the title bar of the small window. This will maximize the child window within the parent window.

I recently switched from XP to 7rc on my Mini-9, as I hear 7 is more efficient on the little lapbooks.

Before, I mapped several shared folders on a network drive to drive letters on my lapbook. Now I can't get network drives to work any more. When I attempt to "map a network drive" I get a network error.

(I had a brief moment of success in the course of setting up the new system -- so it seems at least possible -- but no more. And I have no idea what was special then. )

I've tried all the fixes I can google up for several hours... still no luck.


The configuration &c are the same as before my change, and other computers in the LAN (all on XP) have no trouble reaching the network drive... only the mini running 7rc has this new trouble.


PROBLEM:
- Map network drive doesn't work. Attempts to do so (eg \\192.168.1.2\<folder name>) fail with "Error code: 0x80070035 The network path was not found."


SETUP:
- Wireless LAN
- Router at 192.168.1.1
- Network storage drive at 192.168.1.2
- Other computers at various other 192.168.1.* locations


CHECKLIST:
- Printer & file sharing is turned on
- The computer & network drive are in the same workgroup ("BURROW")
- Firewall is turned off (for diagnosis)
- NETBIOS over TCP/IP is enabled


DIAGNOSTICS:

- PING: success in pinging the drive at 192.168.1.2

My issue is all the network can see each other but when u send or transfer to or from the tablet win 10 - It cannot send through wireless network even through you can tend to see all networks name on the network list etc BUT after ping 192.168.1.1 it shows 1st test no response and then 2nd to 4th shows ping 32 and 64 successful etc then I click on network and can see / Send files to all networks or the network you choose etc as Previously but NOW you can send and receive files etc - it will only work after you ping - any ideas how to solve this ?

and make things worst after i think about 30 minutes or so you have to ping again to see network etc

It appears something going to sleep mode or power saver mode etc but wifi or network i cannot see any information or power mangement ? Please Help - This is doing my head in !!ha

my "taskbar and start menu properties" window's text is SO small. Some of my application window's text face the same problem. The text is tiny that make it impossible to read. I've reset the screen resolution, the text size from 100% to 125 ... but they increase the size of text and the icon on the desktop only, not the text in the window. I'm totally confused now. I miss the simple XP in the old time ... I'm using win7 premium, i don't know whether 32 or 64 ...

A:Small window and small text

The old-style display properties panel is now located at Control Panel -> Personalization -> Window Color -> Advanced appearance settings.

Whether these will have any effect will depend on the theme that you are using. If you are using an Aero theme, chances are this panel will be useless for you. If, however, you are using the Windows Basic theme, i.e. have Aero turned off, then this panel will work just like in XP.

These settings have nothing to do with whether your OS is 32- or 64-bit.

Finally, most programs have their own tools to change the font size. For example in Firefox you can press Ctrl and move the mouse wheel while holding that key. you will see the font size change.

Hope that helps.

Try this.......
When you open a new window and it is smaller than the normal Browser Window do not maximize but manually resize it to fit you screen then hold down the Control (CTRL) button and click the X in the upper right corner to close the Window. Retry your opening of new window and see if that corrects it.
Nore: You may have to use the Control X trick a couple of time to have Explorer remember it.

A:Small Window

For a second IE Window>

This works for me.
Open Internet Explorer
Shift + click a link to force it to open in a separate window
Alt + Tab to return to the first window
Close it, leaving only the small window open
Drag the window edges/corners to adjust the size
Close the resized window

Another way,
Open one IE browser window. Click on a link to open a second.
With the second, drag the corners to the edges of the screen.
Do 'Not' hit the maximize icon. Close the first window, then the second
(the order of closing is important).
Make sure you do File, Close; do 'Not use the X button!

Another way,
Maximize Internet Explorer On Opening
http://www.theeldergeek.com/maximize...t_explorer.htm

Either way the next time you open a second browser window, IE saves the new default window size.

not unless you resize the window to where you usually hit the desktop.

I've been told that IE 9 is a very good browser and even more malware-resistant than Firefox which is what I've been using. The first thing I'm seeing though, when trying Internet Explorer is that every site it opens it does so in a small (minimized) window which is VERY annoying and which Firefox never did. Is there a way to configure IE so that it opens a site in "full page" status? Oh, I've tried to enlargen the minimized windows by dragging the placeholders; but when I do it again, still the small windows open when clicking a link. VERY FRUSTRATING! And, it make me want to stay with Firefox which at least doesn't have THAT problem. If anyone knows of a way out around this, I'd surely like to find out. Thank you.

Window positions are determined by a registry binary blob, and the usual way to fix it is to close all instances of the application, open a new application window, size it the way you want, close it, and then open the application again.

A:active window........ too small

Start IE, right click any link on a web page, and select Open in a New Window.

Go back to the first IE window you opened and close it.

Return to the second window and manually drag it to fill the screen.

Don't use the maximise button, as that's a temporary setting that will not be retained.

Now press the Ctrl button, and close this second window, holding the Ctrl button down, using 'close' in the File menu (This is important!).

This should force Windows to remember the settings, and windows will now open maximised.

A:IE 7 opens in small window

There are a number of reasons why IE may open as a small window. For instance; if you launch from a shortcut and the page you are targetting has the size properties set at runtime or if you have it set to run minimised.

When you open IE from the start menu or quick launch toolbar, maximise it, click File > Exit then re-open it from the start menu or quick launch toolbar does it still open as a small window and what is your home page?

I am using 8.1 on my computer and all is running OK; except one thing that I can't seem to solve. I have the programme 'Soluto' installed (and it runs correctly) but every time I click on the 'Soluto' icon the screen changes rapidly to show the Google Chrome design and then it changes to the black screen/small window style shown below. 'Soluto' is there, but compressed in the tiny window up at the top. Six small icons are displayed on the black screen; Google, Chrome, GMail, (I don't recognize the others) but in any case they don't function.

Can anyone explain how I open 'Soluto' onto a full screen? Thanks for any help.

OK, the problem has been solved. It seems there was some kind of incompatibility in my version of Google Chrome that was causing the error. I ran the troubleshooting software for Chrome and after a few tries the software opened in a full-screen window. 'Soluto' too now runs full size on the screen.

hello all i just purchase a brand new chromebook model cb5-571-c1dz for my 84 year old father.We would really like to be able to see the web address bar and the control buttons (ie: -  square and x) in the window. i have searched through all of the settings and nothing makes this bigger. I myself have an hp brand an do not have that issue. Is this acer specific? Please help as i don't want to have to return his chromebook. No one else but acer had a ssd model that i could afford which is what i want.

I have had this happen before but I can't remember what I did to fix it. I first noticed that I couldn't update Adobe Flash because the install window/box was cutting off the confirmation check box. I can't use system restore because the window/box cuts off the tool buttons. This closed thread addresses the same problem.

I followed the directions but no luck. Anyone?

Howdy...

I am trying to grab this picture off the net, with Mozilla Firefox.
I right click (as usual) but the window that pops up (where I would usually select where to install to) is too small and does not allow me to enlarge it or do anything else, but right click on it and select either close or move. What happened? (I have tried other sites, different pics and even music.) I have no clue. I am the only one who is on this computer daily. Let me know what small miracle can be used to fix my problem.

Thank you -

Ben

I have a Windows XP system at 1.5

when i open a link and then go to a link within i get a small window- how do i correct this? i am using sbc browser
 

A:secound window opoens small

I believe the SBC browser is Inernet Explorer, see if this works.

1. Get to a page with links.
2. Open a link, any link, in a new window (right click, choose "Open in New Window")
3. Close the original window.
4. Resize that second window by dragging the sides and/or corners to the size you want - don't use the maximize button
5. Close the second, resized window.

All future windows should open full size.
