The click and drag to maximize thing usually works.
However, when you close the new window for the first time you must use File>Exit to close it, not the quick close X in the upper right hand corner. If that's what you're doing, have your father open a few hyperlinks in seperate windows, drag them full screen then close all
the windows, including the original, via File>Exit from the toolbar. It "should" stick. If you've already used that method let us know.
