Can't stretch browser to full height

Q: Can't stretch browser to full height

Ever since received my new laptop comes with default Windows 7 Pro 32bit, I realised got this issue been laying in my unit. During initial start-up, the browser will looks normal and fit to screen. However after a while, it shrink to a size which I can't adjust it to the max full height on my screen.
The brown area on top is my desktop background and the area coverage from my browser is already max from what you can see. I can't seems to be able to drag it and cover the the brown area to make it fully fit my screen. It doesn't only affect my browser but to the rest of my applications as well.

What's wrong with my system or is there any settings I need to look into it?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have an Acer Aspire X1800 in a ridiculously small case. Everything gets way too hot and no room for cooling. Plus according to eXtreme Power supply calculator the supplied 220W PSU is well below recommended minimum (and making noises!). So I've nearly finished moving the hardware across to a Thermaltake V4 case with 450W PSU ($73 all up).
I want to keep the old Nvidia 9500GT graphics card but it has a low profile (~1/2 height) mounting bracket with DVI & hdmi holes. The card does really need to be secured. Any suggestions????
(I don't want to buy another graphics card as this is not my main PC)

Edit: I'm asking the question here because I'm guessing quite a few people may have thought about doing something similar. ie. OEM PCs from a crappy little case to a decent sized case.

Did you check your box for your video card. I have a half height video card that had a short and long mounting bracket. If not, you may be able to find them online.

Just updated from Vista 64 to Windows7 64 build7100 .

Using DellWFP 32" monitor and ATI v7200 video card.

My desktop will not extend all the way left to right or top to bottom on my monitor.

It has black bar around desktop extending to edges of monitor.

When I set screen resolution to max 2560x1280 or recommended 1280x800 , then desktop goes full height and width of monitor. However these settings do not work for me at all.

Any other resolution setting and desktop is centered on monitor, very small with black all around it.
Here is image I took with my camera, as a screen shot only displays the desktop. This shows how the desktop is residing within the monitor. I've tried every resolution setting there is for this video card , checked to make sure I had the latest drivers also.

Hi MShack,

With LCD it is best to chose the native resolution of the screen.
This gives the sharpest image.

If windows then appears with bars around it, go to the ATI settings and find overscan. There's a slider you can set to maximum.

In the new ATI suite they have hidden this option so well, it took me 20 minutes to find it.

If you can't find it, let me know, I'll look where it is.
Further, if you have set the native resolution, but you find the icons and text too small.
rightclick on an empty space on the desktop, choose personal preference,
in the windows that opens in the down left corner you'll find screen or something like that, (I'm on dutch OS)

you'll see, make your screen better visible.
Set it to 125%
this make everything much better readable.
good luck.

We chose an M800 for a project due to the picture shown on the Lenovo site for that model as having a PCI slot. After recieving it, of course we learned that it is an "optional part".   There was no way to select this when we originally ordered it.  I know the Fru  00XG124, MSI M.2 to PCI card_V1.0.   I would prefer to order the part, and bring it up to the spec we need as opposed to returning the unit.  Any suggestions?  So far CS has been less than help full.

So I have been using ie 11 since coming to win 8, just not a google fan. But my concern is that sometimes when going to full screen mode I notice that on some sites screen will only go to full browser view rather than blowing out to all 4 corners of my screen. I rather like that, you can increase screen size and still have access to the desktop, but I cannot find a way to switch that, is it possible to make the browser always go to full browser size not full screen ? Win 8.1 64bit not a metro user

Thanks in advance for thoughts

This is a wild request, but I'm desperate. My Day of Defeat (Half-Life mod) clan needs a server. We were going to rent a server from a company, but they raised their prices to the point we couldn't afford it.

If anyone is willing to run a Day of Defeat server for us, please contact me. We need a 14 player public server. We are willing to pay $20/month for this service.

I realize that most people could care less about this but this screen saver issue is HUGE to me. I would welcome any help from anyone regarding this.

There is a free graphics utility that allows you to resize images. WOW 42" computer monitor, I thought I had the caddy of monitors when I went to the 22" widescreen .

Anyway, here's the link to the utility: Paint.NET - Free Software for Digital Photo Editing

Another newbie question about HTML. I used CSS code to have a stationary background. It sits still like a wallpaper and the text scrolls down above it- very nice!

Problem is, my friend TW56 has 1024x748 display and he says the background doesnt fill his screen. Is that because I wrote the code in 800x600? is there any way around this? Can I stretch it so everybody sees a full background?

This is the code I used:

< style type="text/css">
</style >

A:Stretch Background with CSS

Your background image is a fixed size and set to no repeat. If it's an image that can be repeated without looking weird you can set it to repeat. Otherwise you can use javascript to expand and contract the image to fill the browser's background. Of course this will pixelate the image depending on how large the image is to start with.

A:URL Page Will Not 'Stretch' Out

Hi rugrats,

You didn't specify which browser you are using, but I will assume it's a version of Internet Explorer?

Internet Explorer should remember the size when it is closed. If it doesn't, you can set it to open "Maximised" by going into the Properties of the Internet Explorer shortcut.
Right click on the desktop and create a short cut to "Program Files/Internet Explorer/iexplore.exe"
Right click on the short cut and then select Properties.
Click on the tab "Shortcut" and then change the value in the Run command to "Maximized".
Click Apply.
Now Internet Explorer will open in the maximized state when you click on any short cut to iexplore.exe.

A:[SOLVED] Full Screen Not Working from any Browser

First, I would upgrade your Firefox. You are quite out of date. If you don't want version 4 yet, update to 3.6.16 (I think that's the latest). It probably won't help this problem but there have been bug fixes and security patches. It's always a good idea to keep your browser as up to date as possible.

I'll leave the rest to someone else, but if you could give us all of the specs on your system that would help. Also, is this a desktop or a laptop?

Discrete cards have this feature (both nVidia and ATI) but it sounds like you have a laptop (based on having Intel graphics) so that's not an option.

There's software available that can do it for you. Give this one a shot:

I've just received a new Compaq Presario CQ61 for Christmas and have found a problem with personalising the wallpaper which any suggestions for solving would be much appreciated! It runs on Windows 7 Home Premium. I have set the desktop up as a pictures slideshow, which works fine, but it seems to be stuck in "stretch" and will not be changed to another format. I'm logged in as the administrator, I've tried adjusting the UAC settings, but nothing works. I'm sure it's something very small, but have been wracking my brains without success!

I have 2 Samsung SyncMaster 2243 monitors running off of a ATI Radeon 4670 graphics card.

I have downloaded some wallpapers that are wide enough to cover both monitors (large panoramas atc). But it just displays whatever will fit on my main monitor and duplicates it on the secondary monitor (This is only the case with my wallpapers, not the rest of the desktop: shortcuts, start menu etc.). I'm sure this is just a user error on my part. What am I missing?

edit: If I choose the "tile" option. It will ALMOST do what I want. The picture will extend across both monitors, but if it is not quite long enough/tall enough it will start the tiling.

A:stretch screen back to normal size

Just for ther record is this a laptop or a desktop, CRT or LCD screen?

What controls are there on the monitor itself for setting the screen to the right dimensions -- and what effect do they have?

I don't think it's a display resolution problem -- but you can check to see in Display properties if the resolution is what you are used to.

You can also try doing a System Restore which would restore any Windows settings which were lost.

Start > run: msconfig > Launch System Restore and choose a date prior to the problem. These can be undone if not helpful.

If it is a desktop and the above doesn't help -- I would shutdown, disconnect the monitor from both the computer and its power source and then hold down the "power button" on the monitor for about 20 seconds. You might even want to let it sit around for a while to ensure any residual voltages stored internally on it are discharged. Then try reconnecting it.

However, after he had reinstalled Windows XP (using my "Reinstalling Dell Inspiron and XPS System Software" CD, I believe), and I had started it up, I realised the screen had stretched.

What can I do to unscrew this situation? Do I have to math it to compensate and crunch up the original image so it looks normal when stretched (though I get the feeling that will result in pixellation) or is there a smarter solution?

Hi Folks,

I'm looking to replace a standard 9.5mm (height) HDD with what seems like the latest 7mm variant. Specifically, I have a failing Samsung HM160HI and I'm considering the Hitachi Z7K320 range of HDDs. I was going for the Hitachi 7K320 (9.5mm) but they seem to have been superseded by the Z7K320 (7mm) series.

So, my question is - are the 7mm drives a direct drop-in replacement for their 9.5mm predecessors? Or, should I expect problems?

BTW, I have a Dell Vostro 1310 laptop.

Any comments appreciated.


A:7mm Height HDD Compatibility

From the Hitachi site:

Travelstar&#8482; Z7K320 is the industry's first 7200 RPM, 7mm, 2.5-inch hard drive with capacities ranging from 160GB to 320GB. The 320GB per platter one-disk models are designed as a direct replacement for standard 9.5mm HDDs, for use in notebook PCs, external storage and compact systems. The Z7K320 offers design flexibility to accommodate new thinner and more robust devices/systems and delivers up to 18% better application performance than 5400 RPM models of the same capacity.Click to expand...

The drive is thinner, but otherwise compatible, the only place I see a problem is if the drive is held in place by pressure from the hard drive cover but in most laptops the drive is first mounted into a bracket then installed into the laptop and that would hold it in place securely.

Before anyone asks; I'm in the "thinking about it" mode with this case, although I'd be doing all the measuring, layout and building a cardboard version before actually going all out and building it out of aluminum and fibreglass.

Given that its made to measure, for an ITX case, I am hoping to make it as small as possible, but I would still build some tolerances (wiggle space). However those bits sticking out will still put a huge dent on the final build if it wasn't included, so a quick "yes its included" or "no its not" would be greatly appreciated.

One of my users is working on an Excel document with wrapped text in some cells. He wants to auto-fit the height of those rows so all of the wrapped text shows. When he tries the normal auto-fit options (double clicking between row numbers, choosing auto row height from the menus), it actually adjusts the row to a small height that hides much of the text. He is using Excel 2007, but I swear I've seen this myself using 2003 as well. It seems to be a property or problem with the document, not with the program.

I have a Samsung Sync master SA350 27" monitor. Problem I have is that with the stand it sits too high on my desktop raiser shelf. Desktop raiser shelf+stand+monitor=way too high.

It is not wall mountable At least I don't see anything on the back. No holes or any kind of screws. Does anyone have any clever ideas how to make this monitor sit on my desktop without a stand? That would shave of 4-5 inches which would be plenty. I've looked at some monitor arms but they require drilling in the back and I don't see anything where I can attach it in the back.

Thanks in advance

Here's what the back looks like

I am looking at a new build rig - very specialised, to fit in a specific space on my workbench. Main uses will be minimal in terms of output- desktop, web pages, bit of excel, and 3D printer software (very undemanding from a GPU point of view.
I considered a PCIe riser, and use one of my spare cards, but this wouldnt really fir woth the scheme.

Display is a standard 24", (small but usable )which has only a VGA connector, so this is preferred.

To summarise- I am looking for a video card with minimal height (length doesnt matter), with VGA output, PCIe interface and capable of basic output. Cheap is good, but note that I am UK, so US or other links wont be overly useful ( delivery is more than the cost as a rule). Any suggestions welcomed- thanks!

I am wondering. Is there some problem with using either intel or amd onchip video? The amd apus can have up to a R7 video and the intel the intel 4600; both of which should be fine for your use.

Hello forum,

i have the following problem and may you could help me:

I managed my task bar that its represented in double height with large icon (Quicklaunch Bar). As the new task bar looks like in Windows 7.
The problem is every time Vista starts the task bar is simply represented again,but not in double height. Then I must make the Attitudes again new each time (Quicklaunch Bar, options, large symbols, lock task bar).
Is there a possibility, perhaps by Script, which my attitudes are taken over when starting?
I have Admin rights on vista.

Thanks in advance

There is a fairly simple method in desktop properties in XP which allows one to change the height (thickness) of the Windows titlebars. One could change the font size and the titlebar would become smaller. Does anyone know how this is done in Vista?

In C#, I want to save form width and height dimensions to the registry on closing the form. It works fine when the form is in normal state, but when it is minimized, the dimensions are recorded as 0(zero). On reopening the form, it starts up minimized as expected, but when I try to restore it, the form does not show up because the dimensions are still zero. Similarly, if the form is maximized when I close it, the dimensions are recorded as the screen dimensions, the form reopens maximized but is not resizable even after clicking on restore. I tried saving the Width and Height values in the Resize event, but these are already changed by the time you get into the event if you have minimized or maximized. Where does Windows store the dimensions for restoring? Can I access this? Thanks in advance.

Hello all. I have a persistent problem with my taskbar jumping up to be a double height. I've tried everything to move it down to being a normal bar, but nothing works except rebooting. And when rebooting doesn't work I do a system restore.It's a nuisance.When I place the cursor on the top edge and it turns into a double spearhead, and then move it downwards, the taskbar disappears all together beneath the screen.I'd appreciate any help with this.

When I explore a folder with (mainly) image files in it, they are displayed as tiles (thumbnails?) but widely spaced out vertically.

If I scroll the window up/down to refresh the view then the rows of images are closer together. Please see the attached "before" and "after" screenshots.

Is there any way I can get Explorer to do this automatically?

A:Q: Explorer - row height for icon view

Hello DarkStart,

You can increase the Size for the Icon Spacing (Vertical) Item in Advanced Appearance Settings to have more space between icons in all Windows Explorer windows.

Hope this helps,

Hi everyone,
One information before starting: I am French, and like any good French, angry with foreign languages &#8203;&#8203;....
Sorry by advance for bad english ...

I resurrected an post a bit old, of February 2011 (Mr Davo) because I have the same problem of line height suddenly increased to 409 points in opening certain files created with versions prior to Excel 2010.
I observed that this phenomenon always occurs concomitantly with an object, an embedded drawing, or comment in a cell that is open in the first line increased. Then, a random number of line could be touched by "the thing" .... horrible !!! I confirm that i have see the problem only in (my..) Excel 2010.

Desperate to find a French forum that talks about this problem, I came here.
Someone else has encountered this problem you it? To date, I found only two posts on teh Web (including this one) that evokes the question.

best regards,

A:half height network card

I do remember a LONG time ago, taking a regular Network card, and cutting the metal bracket (staying clear of the PCB) with tin snips to fit a slim gateway computer for my cousin. It wasn't pretty, but it worked. It was of course before I even knew that half-height cards were manufactured, back then I assumed gateway was tryin to corner the market er somthing

Hello All,

I don't know how I did it but I doubled the height of the Quick Launch bar and it is really annoying. I cannot find the procedure on how to resize it back to it's original single height size. I am running Win XP with SP2 installed.

Can anyone help?

Customization of taskbar for standard theme (right click on task bar, properties, check on "use small icons") permit to reduce the huge appearence but is not sufficent for me . I would know if there is a method to force icons @ 20px and taskbar @24px, like tweaking the registry or whatever.

This should permit to have a minimalistic appearance.
Anybody has a clue on this "problem"?
Thanks in advance!

I acknowledge this may be a silly question but here goes...

For a normal tower computer without super duty fan has anyone ever bothered to determine at what ~ height off a carpeted floor will the fan suck significantly less carpet dust into the machine?


A:Tower height off floor vs. dust?

I'm going to say no, because it shouldn't ever be sitting on carpet anyway. Carpet is a conductor of static electricity, so if you need it on the floor, I would put something under it, like a piece of wood from an old shelf, etc.

I was wondering if there's any registry val that controls the list item height and spacing of explorer folder windows, when using the List view mode?

For a while I thought something was off but wasn't sure exactly what, it felt like I was seeing less files and had to scroll more, or make windows bigger. Upon closer look that was correct, previous windows versions had smaller height (and no spacing) in list mode, using the screen real estate more efficiently. It has been a bit difficult to do searches, as the search terms are too generic to come up with anything useful.

Picture attached for clarification.

A:possible to change list item height/spacing?

I'll answer myself to document the solution (or at least a solution). After not having found any registry keys, I went through some stylesheets in the usual suspects dll files.

It's done by editing a view values in an embedded xml resoure of ExplorerFrame.dll. The resource in question is xml stylesheet found under "UIFILE" / 40960. (I won't go into the editing specifics, there are plenty of those around the net in relation to customizing icons or disabling the Folder Band by editing dll resources.)

In the following 3 sections
<UICollection resid="collection.list.groups"
<UICollection resid="collection.list.ungrouped"
<UICollection resid="collection.list.insidegroup"




and the really compact list is back (yes it's win7, changed the folder icons since last screenshot )

HI Folks

Apologies - I should know how to do this but.... can anyone tell me how to get the margin and page height indicators along the side and top of the page in MS Word2000.

I have a document that I want to reformat as it is too long with the default margins and page heights. I need to increase the height of the page and increase the margins to get more on the page.
