#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:

  1. Open the app (file explorer etc.)
  2. Expand the window by clicking maximize or Windows Button + Up Arrow
  3. 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.
