Re: Windows Key + Up Arrow Maximizes Window

Also, what happens if you do two things in this order:
First maximize the program so the actual program window takes the entire screen.  Now, turn on full screen, f11.  The web page should then take up the entire program window and since the program window is now taking up the entire screen, it should be large.
 
It may be that you may need sighted help to adjust the size of the web page so that when you open a web page, it fills the window without you having to do these things.  But for now, if this works, if you do this at the beginning of a session, you shouldn’t have to do it again until you close and reopen the browser.
 
Also, and I’m just asking this so as to leave no possibility I can think of unconsidered, what screen-reader are you using?  I don’t recall if you said.  Are you using any attachments either in Chrome or in the screen-reader that might be causing a problem?  You are evidently working visually to an extent.  Are you using a magnification program?

If you maximize the program, is the screen still very small?  And by that do you mean the entire program or just the display of the web page with the program taking up much more room?  At this point, I’m not sure what is causing the problem.

The problem is that the screen is very small when focused on a webpage. I don't need to have any other programs open, just one and it still is very small.

When you press, F11, in the browser it'll maximize the screen, but you can't access the menues when you do this.  I'm not debating whether keystrokes work only in browsers or not in browsers, I'm only saying pressing, Windows key + up arrow, is the Windows keystroke for maximizing windows and it doesn't hurt anything to try something if nothing else is working.  The same for the system context menu, Alt + spacebar, keystroke.
 
Exactly what problem are you having?  Your problem may not have anything to do with a maximized screen.

Now this is interesting because it does nothing for my screen at all. F11 changes it in the browser, but it doesn't change it in the way it should. If I press alt space bar and check to see if it's maximized, it tells me that it is, but it isn't really.
 
This is a laptop, so I'm wondering if there isn't a setting in displays that is getting in the way and needs to be changed.
