My OE 6 has started defaulting to less than full screen each time I switch views. I can correct by maximizing but this is tedious.  I thought there was a way to correct the display by dragging the borders but I can't get this to work.  Can anyone remind me what the secret is?  [the help file was not much help]

I am running Windows XP.  Thanks.

Make sure that your Restore Down and Maximize toggle (the middle one of the three in the upper right hand corner) is in the restore down mode(two sheets of paper, not single one). Resize to a smaller frame that's suitable for you. Then toggle to maximized, click the red x to exit to maintain the toggle sizes. When you open it again it should open full size and you can toggle back and forth full size and the previously set restore down size.

Hope this helps.

Tks for such a quick reply.  I have done what you suggest but it reopens in the smaller frame even though I maximized before exiting.  I am about to end the session now, may be it will recover when I re-boot?
