Go Full Screen in Windows XP. 2 Methods.

Do you find that you need more screen real estate? Maybe you hate not using every last inch of your screen... Or maybe JUST maybe you are doing a presentation and you don't want to distract the audience with your ga-jillion plug-ins and crap. Either which way AtA is here to show you how to full screen your Window.

To view a window full screen, hold down the Ctrl key and double-click the window's title bar—or when the window is active, press the F11 key at the top of your keyboard—to get the biggest window possible.

While this works for me on ALL Micro$oft applications it DID NOT work on FireFox nor does it work well in Vista (The side bar stays all out in the open). This is a great addition to your Admin Toolkit for any budding computer know-it-all or advanced geeks alike. Got a tip to share with us?
