Question Microsoft Games

Hi again guys,

(Emachines 1.2B,256MB RAM,Win.XP 17" monitor)

This time it's just a simple question my wife asked me to ask ya'll.

My wife loves playing the solitare game "Free Cell" and on her computer it opens in only about 1/3 of the screen and I have not been able to adjust it to FULL SCREEN the way she likes it.

On my old computer with Win 95 it was full screen and on her computer at work also with Win 95 it's full screen.

Any Ideas on how I can get this one full screen????

As usual, thanks in advance for the help.

Similar problem

I have a similar problem. Pages, including Inbox and Internet, load taking up 2/5 of the screen. I can drag them open to maximize, B] but how do I get them to open as a full page automatically? [/B] This just started today.

Thank you,

Windows XP Where do I find the additional info that you would like? Thanks

Hi Adrian
I have 98se with a 19 inch screen and I just checked it. My free cell game does not go full screen. But I can tell you one that does and it's a lot better free cell game.

What is the setting for the resolution of your monitor? Do you have the current video and monitor drivers?

Good Morning Guys,

As usual, I thank you for your great advice, you guys are absolutely great!!!

I finally got the full skinny from Microsoft about the game issue.

With Windows 98, 98SE, ME, and XP you can NOT get full screen on Free Cell.

Ohhhhhhhhhh wellllllll guess my wife will just have to live with it.

Thanks again guys and have a great day!!!

yeah, I've seen this before too. Not sure why M$ has it this way but just get a different fc game if it bothers you.
