    I'm not using my external monitor today - just the laptop.  When I start a game the actual game window is a tiny portion of the available laptop screen and i can't figure out how to get that game window full screen. i can make the game "main screen" as full screen, but the window where you are playing and interacting with the ball, chatting, etc - that little window can't maximize. :(

    If you are using a Windows machine Amy, try downloading and running this...

    WGT Maximized

    Once downloaded, locate it in your downloads folder and double click it to run it.

    There are three keyboard shortcuts for it...

    CTRL + ALT + M to maximise the game window (Maximise)

    CTRL + ALT + W to take the game out of fullscreen (Window)

    CTRL + ALT + X to exit the program (eXit)

    You can also access these functions by right clicking on the icon  in your system tray (righthand end of your taskbar).

    Additional information:

    1. If the game is open, running the program will automatically maximise the game.
    2. If the game is not open, running the program will *automatically open the game and maximise it.
    3. Exiting the program will close the game (if open).
    4. If the program is running and the game is not open, activating the maximise operation will open the game.

    * Will only work if the game is in its default installation location.

    Could be you just need to fiddle with the resolution in game settings...

    Indeed Ana.

    Do that first Amy, poke the game buttons and twiddle the dials.  ; )

    I launch the game first using, then just launch WGT Maximized and presto. Also, it won't minimize the game while multitasking. Awesome program!!

    Scott will it work with the 3 desktops like I use when playing?

    Do you mean 3 monitors Joe? If you do then I believe it will maximise on your primary monitor.

    If you play the game on a monitor that isn't your primary, then I'm sure I could modify the script just for you.  : )

    If you mean 3 separate computers, then you would need to download the script onto all 3.

    No none of those. The way you showed me to have more than 1 virtual desktop on one PC and monitor,

    I tried it and it still left the task bar. The way I maximize like you told me through the task manager covers the task bar us as well which I like better,

    Is there a way to cover the task bar as well with it?

    Sorry Joe, I'd forgotten about having multiple desktops on one machine.

    Does the task manager method not work anymore for you?
