Today’s tip: How to Make a Small Window Big
Q: When I open the internet (or a document), the window barely fills half the screen. What’s the quickest way to make it bigger?
A: There are three easy solutions, each 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 a challenge, here’s a better way: Double click the blue title bar at the top of the document.
- Click-hold the bar at the top of the window and ‘throw’ it to the top of the screen. This automatically maximizes the window.
