When ever I try to maximise the Microsoft Word main Window, it does maximises but there is gap left on the top of the page equivalent to the size of start menu bar and the bottom of the program hides under the screen. Tried restarting and tried changing resolution as well but did not make any difference; can anybody help

Hi, KHOME,

I'm unclear on what kind of maximizing you are doing.  If you are maximizing with the "Maximize" button in the upper-right corner of the Word window, then the result is that the Window gets as big as it can within the confines of any visible toolbars or the task bar. Word's window frame itself is also till visible.

If you go to View > Full Screen, that will display your open document without the toolbars and without the window frame.  You can scroll down the document with your mouse or arrow keys.

Are you trying to something different?

is it with word only ? or all applications?
 check your monitor setting otherwise !!
 delete normal.dot file (under c:\doc. & settings\USERNAME\app. data\microsoft\template\) <- but this will remove all ur personalised settings to standard/default.
