Window doesn't open full screen when hover over IE window

Q: Window doesn't open full screen when hover over IE window

I have a Lenovo N580 laptop. Last week, I had to do a factory reset (with help from Lenovo Tech Support) because of compatibility problems with new software from my employer and windows 8.1 which is actually worse than windows 8. The compatibility problems caused my screen to go black. When booting, the Lenovo logo appeared and I had a cursor, but nothing else accept a black screen. I tried suggestions found here and the Lenovo help forum, but none worked and the factory reset was the last resort. Now I am back to using Windows 8 (this was actually the second factory reset due to other problems caused by win 8.1).

Anyway, everything is working (for now) and I also have Classic Shell installed. HOWEVER, before this second factory reset, when I had multiple windows open, aero peek worked fine. Now, it doesn't. I followed earlier suggestions of right clicking the taskbar, then clicking Properties, but the box for "Use Peek ..." is dimmed (grayed out) so I cannot check it to enable aero peek.

I got used to this feature in Win 7 and was glad to see it in Win 8, but it is the only feature about Win 8 and 8.1 that I like. Thanks for your help.

Preferred Solution: Window doesn't open full screen when hover over IE window

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.)

A:Open new window in full screen?

Hello Joe,

Windows 7 remembers the size and position of all Windows Explorer windows for what the last window was closed as. You can open a Windows Explorer windows, maximize it, then close it. All windows will open maximized after that as long as you close them while maximized as well.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

If I click on a thread, I get the response in a full size window on my 19' LCD monitor.

However, if I right click on a thread and click on "open in new window" I get a window about 2 inches too small on all 4 sides, I can click on the maximize option and make it a full size window, but I'd like to find a way to cause it to open full size.

I tried draging the window to make it full size and holding the shift key when closing it, to no avail.
 

A:Solved: How to open full screen in new window?

Open the secondary screen and resize it as you have described. Now, switch to ALL the other IE instances and close them, making the newly resized screen the last IE window closed. It'll now open at the new size.

Hi,

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?
Thanks.

I just receive my Windows 7 64-bit laptop and I encountered problems with Internet downloads. I've tried download using IE or Firefox and via the LAN and Wireless adapters and the results are the same - downloads always stuck in the middle at random position and cannot complete. I use Wireshark to capture the network packets and discovered that whenever the download interruption occur there will be TCP Window-Full sent over from the server on the other side and the local adapters respond with TCP Zero-Window then the download stalls. Then I downgrade the machine to Windws XP everything working fine, so I believe this is a Windows 7 related issue, any idea how can this TCP Window-Full /Zero-Window stalls download problems under Windows 7 be resolved?

Hi all. First off I want to say a BIG thanks for helping me out with the Hijack this log. My computer is so much nicer now.

There is one thing that I was wondering about. When I click on a link that opens a new window, it doesn't open properly. It goes to the bottom and I have to right click and 'maximize' it. It's been doing this forever, and now my friend's computer does the same thing.

What do you suggest? I have reset my Internet Settings already, trying to get it to work properly. I run Spybot all the time. Nothing pops up in my virus scans. I did a scan disk last night (another thing you helped me fix so it would run properly, thanks. I love the 'search') and I defrag. This is about the extent of my skills.

Any suggestions would be great. Thanks!

In Win 7, when I move a window near the edge of the screen, the window expands to full screen. How do I turn off this feature?

The web has the answer:
You can disable this feature:
Control Panel --> Ease of Access Center --> Make the Mouse easier to use
Place a check mark in the "Prevent Windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen option."
Apply/OK.
So I did that ... and it made NO difference at all.

A simple one here, I hope.

Sometimes when I attempt to run games (at full screen) they refuse to do so.
The monitor changes resolution and goes black, but the intro sequence does not display. If I then click, the window minimises itself to the task bar, and I cannot re-open it.

This occurs on several different games, and both of my machines. Most of the time I can get the games to run fine.

Even if I can't solve the source problem, if I could open the games in a window that would be an advantage!
Thanks all in advance!
p.s.
I have a feeling it has something to do with a corruption of data in the buffer (excuse my lack of knowledge here) as it usually happens when I have already opened something to full screen and it then failed.

I would like to be able to open a new browser window in Firefox which would start at the identical location to the one that's open rather than opening at the home page.

In IE, File / New / Window works well for this purpose, and then if you wanted it to start at the Home Page, you could just run Explorer a second time.

It gives the flexibility of going off on other trails with the additional window, but still having the original window open. I'm not crazy about tabs which take up extra space in the browsing window. However, is there even a way to open a new tab at the same location as the current window? Maybe I'm missing the joy of tabs somehow and am stuck in my old way of thinking. Still, I would like to know if what I want is possible.

Thanks.

A:[SOLVED] Open new browse window at same location as current window

Hi I don't think that is an option but I understand what your after and this is the way I do it with keyboard short cuts of

Ctrl + C = copy (While holding down Ctrl tap the C key once)
Ctrl + V = paste
Ctrl + T = new tab
Ctrl + N = New page

OK starting with tabs which I think is the best thing since sliced bread. You have the page open that you want to start with go up to the URL at the top of the page (do it with this page) click only once on the URL this will highlight it or if you like to say select it.

Now to copy the URL Ctrl + C your computer will remember this link until you either copy something else or you shut down the computer.

Now we open a new tab Ctrl + T a new blank tab will open and the URL location is blank but with the cursor already in it so we paste the URL there by Ctrl + V and tap the enter key and you have the duplicate page

Now working with a new page there is just a couple of small differences.

You have the page open that you want to start with go up to the URL at the top of the page (once again do it with this page) click only once on the URL this will highlight it or if you like to say select it.

Now we open a new page with Ctrl + N a new page will open but the difference is it will not be blank it will be your home page so as there is already a URL that we want to get rid of. The simple way is to once again click on it only once to select it then paste the saved URL by Ctrl + V and tap the enter key and ... Read more

This is my first post here, so just let me know if this belongs somewhere else.

What I want is to have a separate monitor displaying Diablo 3 while I do other things on my primary screen. So the program should not minimize when I select another window. Is that possible or would that require Diablo 3 to allow that?

Yes and Yes...Yes it's possible, but you would need some 3rd party software that can do this. Yes...it depends on the games settings which would allow/prevent this.

I've been seeing what appears to be a windows bug, but I havent been able to locate any discussion or permanent fix. In a application that has been maximized, the top inch (edge-to-edge across the top 80-100 pixels? or so, enough that the office ribbon is mostly obscured) becomes white, and clicking in that space actually clicks-through to the application (or desktop) that is behind it.

It appears to only happen to a single application at a time, and the effect disappears if the user pulls that application out of full screen mode (using the Windows-Arrow shortcuts, as the minimize, windowed, and close buttons at the top are no longer accessible). I've seen it in IE, Word, Excel, and Acrobat. The issue disappears with a reboot. I can probably count the number of times it's occurred on both hands in the last year, and I've never had a chance to really do much more in the way of testing. I dont believe there's any event log entries that appear in conjunction with it.

Our office is running all dell hardware (laptops and desktops of different flavors), on Windows 7 32/64bit, and the only thing that appears consistent between the users having the problem is the use of two monitors.

It started happening to just one user about a year ago (infrequently) and has recently been reported by 3-4 more users in the last couple months.

We've been users of AVG and Malwarebytes, and I dont suspect anything nefarious... just seems to be an irritating bug from the looks of... Read more

I've been using Edge for awhile now (on Windows 10), and noticed that when I click a hyperlink that links to a .jpg format, Edge opens a blank tab, instead of opening the tab the picture embedded. It then immediately closes the new tab.
 
For example, on this site: http://www.paslc.org/RECard/#/propCard/58166
 
Left clicking on the photo results in an empty new tab that closes immediately; right clicking on the photo and "open in new tab" does the same but tries to download the picture to my computer. In previous versions of Internet Explorer clicking on those links would simply open a tab (or a new window) with a preview of the picture.
 
Does anyone know if this is even a feature in MS Edge, and if so how can I enable it?

I use both the in-built version of Paint, and the earlier mspaint which I copied from XP and pasted into Windows 8.1.

Both have been working until this evening, when their Text windows stopped opening.

Not knowing what else to try, I ran the system file check, and rebooted, but that has made no difference.

What can I do to repair them?
