New computer, new Windows 7 user. We are avid Hidden object game players and several of the games won't go full screen on the Windows 7 computer but will be fine on the Windows XP computer. Any ideas where I can find a setting to correct this problem?
Thanks in advance as always.

You may need to alter the display resolution from it's current setting to make the game fill the screen.
Right-click an empty area on the Desktop and choose "Screen resolution" from the context-menu.
Strictly speaking though, if it's an LCD monitor it should be set to a specific "native" resolution based on it's screen-size to yield the clearest image, but running it at a different res won't harm it if you want to experiment.

Glad to be of help. Could you please update your profile to show 'Windows 7' as your OS, as currently it shows as 'Windows 2000'?
Not obligatory of course, but it often helps us when, for example, posters forget to tell us what OS they are having a problem with.
