How to Go Full Screen on Windows XP


In Microsoft Windows XP, open windows are about one quarter of the size of the screen. However, Windows XP will "remember" window size when the window is closed. To go full screen in Windows XP, just maximize your windows for each application before closing them. Windows XP will remember that the windows are maximized and the next time they are opened, they will open in a full-screen mode.

  • Open an application window such as Windows Explorer. To open Windows Explorer, right-click on the Windows "Start" button and click "Windows Explorer."

  • Double-click on the top bar of the window, or click the "Maximize" icon (the square) in the top right corner of the window to maximize the window to full screen.

  • Close the window by clicking the "X" in the top-right corner.

  • Re-open Windows Explorer. The window now opens maximized and in full-screen mode.

  • Repeat for each application window. Once finished, all windows open in full-screen mode.
