  1. Hello there i dont know if there is anyone out there that can help me. My friend has a problem in windows XP. He told me that when he opens up any window within the desktop it opens very very small. Now the question i have is there a option or a setting he can go to. To make the windows open up normal or bigger than how they open up now?

    Well, once a window is opened and then closed. It theoretically should remember what the last size was and reuse that. Try expanding the window, and then hitting the X.

    BTW

    he can always go into display settings in control panel to adjust resolutions.

    GOOGLE is GREAT




    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StreamMRU


    The above 2 keys are used in all versions of Windows (since 95/NT); Windows XP also uses the following keys, so you might want to delete these too:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\Bags
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\BagMRU

    (the pane on the left with groups like file/folder tasks, other places, details, etc) is stored in the following key:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\DUIBags

    Delete that to reset this data too.

    I woulda found it if my machine had problems
    you can to, just goolgize it all
