    It could have been a M$ update, I have made one or two in the past month.But
    I'm normally real picky about what updates I'll let it install. Mostly just
    security updates. I've hidden all video updates cause it just totally screws my
    window.

    Just recently when I hit full screen for all programs, it goes to the topof
    the screen. and the bottom locks up 1/4 inch above the status bar.

    To get full screen the way hitting the FS button I have to go to normal mode,
    and resize the window top and bottom. The windows will move to the statusbar,
    and the top, but I'm guessing something is telling all the programs that full
    screen is now 1/4 inch higher and shorter than it was awhile back.

    How do I get the full screen back to full screen ?

    Adjust the default size of windows
    Changing the size of a window sets the default size of subsequent windows
    you open for that particular program or folder. For example, if you're using
    WordPad, and you want your document windows to open to the same size, you
    can resize one document window, and then any document windows you later open
    will be the same size.
    To resize a window
    To change the height, point to the top or bottom window border. When the
    pointer changes into a vertical, double-headed arrow , click the border, and
    then drag it up or down.
    To change the width, point to the left or right window border. When the
    pointer changes into a horizontal, double-headed arrow , click the border,
    and then drag it to the right or left.
    To change the height and width at the same time, point to any window corner.
    When the pointer changes into a diagonal, double-headed arrow , click the
    border, and then drag it in any direction.
    Note
    You can't resize a window that's minimized or maximized.

    No, I must have changed the aspect ratio to add a border.
    changed it back to full screen.
