I just bought a nice new widescreen monitor. This site seems to work in widescreen just fine but other sites (yahoo etc) seem to still be in a box type shape. How do I make them go widescreen? I'm running Vista and IE7 if it matters.

P.S I'm a new guy here so forgive me if this is in the wrong board

Welcome to BC :thumbsup:

Some sites (like Yahoo, MSN etc) hard code the width of their content. So you are out of luck for those web sites.
Other websites which dynamically resize according to the screen, are going to fill your widescreen monitor.

Have a nice day.
