Tech Tip #21: How to Make a Small Webpage Window Big

Posted by on February 15, 2011

tech tipsAs a working technology teacher, I get hundreds of questions from parents about their home computers, how to do stuff, how to solve problems. Each Tuesday, I’ll share one of those with you. They’re always brief and always focused. Enjoy!

Q: When I open the internet (or a document), the window is small. It barely fills half the screen. What’s the quickest way to make it bigger?

A: There are two easy solutions, one faster than the other

  • Click the maximize box in the upper right corner of the document.
  • If you have youngers whose fine motor skills aren’t quite there and aiming/clicking that tiny box is really a challenge, here’s a better way: Double click the blue title bar at the top of the document. That takes care of it without aiming at the tiny spot.
