    Excel

    Lately when I open excel workbooks they open in a small window. How can I
    get them to open maximized? or normal size? I am using office XP with
    windows 2000 operating system.

    Drag them to full size and then use File-Close rather than the "X" box.
    And a tip - please put a precis of your question in the subject line, not
    just "Excel". We all *know* you are asking an Excel question, as this is an
    Excel group!

    Sorry about the subject - was led to list forum through a series of sites but
    did not realize it was excel exclusive. I have maximized then closed the
    files from the file menu but they still keep opening in small windows (most
    of the time.)

    That's not what I said - *DRAG* the window to its full size - *DON'T* use
    the "maximise" button

    Don't maximize.

    Stretch the window using the re-size pointer then close the window.

    Windows should remember that setting.
