    All,

    I just got my SP3 i7 and when I try to run programs, they are not full screen and thus very hard to run.

    It is in some type of window but I am not able to maximize it (and can only minimize it to the task bar). I know when I run on my desktop Win7 machine it works fine.

    Any ideas?

    Thx

    Desktop Apps or Metro Apps? All?

    Guessing he means full desktop applications since he references it working fine on Windows 7 (metro does not apply there).

    Are you running these fullscreen apps in a lower resolution than the native desktop? I have seen this for games, there is a option in the intel control panel to tell it to scale it to fullscreen, not on my SP right now so unable to tell you exactly what its called.
