I just did a clean install of win XP Home.... When I go on the Internet the pages load in a separate window and I have to enlarge it. After I enlarge some pages they are not filling out my screen , I have space on each side.

I had win ME before and never occured his problem. I'm sure it's just a setting but for the life of me I can't find it .

Thank You ......... :thumbsup:

What resolution do you have your video adapter set at. So web pages are set at 800X600 dpi and you will have a white space on either side of the page, if you run higher than that (1024X768 dpi for example).

Not sure, but you can try this also:

Open a new internet window. Drag it to the size you want manually by moving your mouse to the corners of the window and when a diagonal double headed arrow appears click and drag. Next, go to File > Close.

Now that size will be 'remembered' and the next time you open an internet window it should come up that size.

Of course, it depends upon the website that you are visiting also. It is possible for the creator of a website to instruct your browser to open a window of a certain size when you click on a link on their web site. So, to determine if this is the case or if the issue is on your computer try different web sites.
