Windows 7 home does not open to "fullscreen" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I've read other threads on this problem but the solutions do not work for me which is why I'm posting my problem. 7 OS worked fine but stopped opening up to full screen.

    My windows 7 home premium doesn't open to fullscreen. 

    1. unable to click and drag the window to full screen under any circumstances

    2. tried internet tool options to "maximize" but this didn't work either.

    any help would be appreciated.

  • Hi,

    I would verify whether all the applications cannot be opened maximize or even if the desktop is not displayed full screen.

    Have you made any changes prior to this issue?

    Please check the following:

    1. Update all your drivers.

    2. Using anti-virus program to scan the system.

    3. Boot in Clean Boot mode and Safe Mode to exclude 3rd party software’s effect.
