I inadvertently clicked something in Excel while I was shutting down. Now MOST of my applications open in a tiny window; see attached for Word as an example.

How can I get them back to open in full screen?

Thanks.

Try closing all but one of the small windows. "Grab" the corners of the remaining window with your cursor and "stretch" it to the desired size but do not use the maximize button.

Close the resized window. (The resized window needs to be the last window closed in order for its size to be remembered.)
