I had it set but again I forgot, how do I get the screen to stay maximized when I go onto/open another window? Seems simple and trivial but the less clicks the better...for me anyway..Any help will be appreciated very much,

Yes holding shift does keep the application at maximize.

I think that La Princess has tried that before, and it did not work, right?
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.

To make a window open to itís full size every time you open it:
1. Open the window
2. Drag the corners to the full size of your screen
3. Click on File
4. Click on Close
Using this method, Windows saves it as it is. If you close the window by clicking on the red cross in the top right-hand corner, that just closes the window - it doesnít remember how big it was when it was closed!
(Alternatively, you can try clicking on the red cross whilst holding down the Shift key but this method doesn't work in all programmes).
