Hello,
I am using a program which is a compilation of some e-books. The books can be accessed only after installing the program. When I used this program in Win XP, the program window could be maximized to full screen size. But in Win7, it shows a small window which cannot be resized. I am using a wide screen Inspiron Dell laptop. Is this Win7 issue or laptop screen resolution problem? I also tried to change screen settings. Resolution is set to highest (1366x768).Can anybody help me with this problem? It is very irritating to read books in a small window. Thank you. :)

Thanks for your reply Thor. I reduced the resolution, but I got the warning that "Optimal resolution is 1366 x 768. Also, the screen looked not-so-good after lowering the resolution. So I switched back to previous resolution. Still I am very thankful for your reply.

You are right caperjack. This didn't help either :)

Thanks caperjack. Even 'Age of Empires' does not occupy whole screen. The e-book program which I am using is not available over the net and sharing it will be a copyright violation. I understand that a screenshot won't be sufficient to justify the problem, but still if you think that it will be useful, please let me know and I will mail you the screenshot. PM me your mail id. Or please let me know how to PM you ( i cudn't find the option to do that) and I will provide u my id.

ok, right click on [my]Compter icon ,go properties ,open device manager, open display adapter, right click on whats there and go properties /driver ,make a note of the date and version number .
then go to dell support for your laptop model in drivers check display and compare what they have there with yours ,
