#Microsoft365 – Irritated by #Windows that always open in a small window, and not expanded (maximized)? Same goes for #MSOffice applications that open up. Whether you want to open it expanded or not, this is how you set the default.
For previous posts in my #Microsoft365Challenge go to the index
How to customize your Office Ribbon:
When you open apps / file explorer etc. on your machine, it doesn’t always open in fully expanded mode.
To set a default on how windows should open, do the following:
- Open the app (file explorer etc.)
- Expand the window by clicking maximize or Windows Button + Up Arrow
- Once expanded, close the window while keeping the CTRL button in.
Done, your computer has now set a default on how to open that app etc.
I know. It’s just another one of those things we didn’t know existed, but makes the world’s difference!
Purpose of this blog challenge:
I will write 365 blogs in 365 days around Microsoft 365. I did a similar challenge with Office 365, blogs can be found here. I won’t just be talking about the new Microsoft 365 subscription model. I will be sharing any news, tips and tricks around Office / Office 365 / Windows / Mobility and Security. And let’s not forget all the great new Apps & services available. A lot of what I’ll share on Office and SharePoint will also be applicable to none “Office 365” versions.

This doesn’t work with File Explorer. Next time you as much as snap a window and then close it, Windows reverts to opening File Explorer in a tiny window. It drives me insane!

It does work with File Explore? I teach and show my students this all the time? How strange that it’s not working for you?
