When you need to see more files in Windows Explorer, chances are that you click on the Maximize button to expand the window. While this does indeed give you a more room to work with your files, we recently discovered how to really get the big picture.
If you've installed Internet Explorer, you have another option. The next time you open Windows Explorer, press the [F11] key. When you do, you activate a full-screen feature similar to the one found in Internet Explorer. This feature is available in Windows Explorer because of the tight integration between Internet Explorer and the Windows operating system. To return the screen to normal size, simply press the [F11] key again.
The hidden full screen feature is also available in My Computer.
