I have designed a website for an elderly woman and some of the people that view it only use AOL to look at it and don't go into Internet Explorer or any other browser. Because of this, there are a few pages that make the wording overlap the graphics on the page, unless you maximize the screen. It looks just fine if the screen/window is maximized.

What code do I need to put into my MS Front Page site that regardless of which browser opens the page, it will automatically maximize the window they are looking at it through? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. TIA.

I think this is what you are looking for

Window Maximiser -
(Place this script in the head of any document that you want to be maximised.)

<script language="Javascript">
<!--
window.moveTo(0,0)
window.resizeTo(screen.width,screen.height)
//-->
</script>

Please tell me if it works :whistling:

Thanks VOA for the code. :whistling: I placed it in and uploaded it, but it didn't work. :blink: Will have to keep looking. I don't know why AOL's windows won't automatically maximize. They use IE as the default browser.

No prob. I know about that code as a standard in MS FP for the "normal" browser, but I can't for the life of me figure out why it won't open up AOL. The browser may not be able to take control of the AOL software. That is the only thing I can think of.

It does. I know that, because I use AOL myself also. Plus, I Pogo.com uses Javascript for their games and such and they work just fine.
