    Default Window only fills half page when opened...

    When I click to go to the internet through Chrome the page is half way down the screen. Every time I open it, it does this. I have to move it up or click on maximize.
    How do I fix this?
    Thanks for the quick browser.

    Hi Susie. None of us created the browser - you need to thank the Chromium team and Google for that!

    What operating system are you using; Windows or Linux? It sounds like a strange problem, as windows normally stay where you put them. I'm on Windows Vista, and once I set a window position for an application, it opens in the same place next time. I don't use Linux, but I would guess that it behaves the same way.

    Basically, what I'm saying is that I don't think it's Chrome which is at fault. Do any other applications do this on your PC, or just Chrome?

    I'm using Windows Vista! Just Chrome is doing that.
    HUM, I wonder why?
    Thanks,

    That is a strange problem! Have you tried moving the browser window and resizing it, then closing it and restarting to see if it appears in the same place? I guess another (perhaps) useful question is which version of Chrome are you using? A lot of folks here are using the Dev (development) version, as they're into new features and have kinda masochistic tendencies..! (Self edited).

    I've moved it, resized it, closed it, restarted it, laid hands on it and prayed. LOL!
    I'm using 4.0.223.16 and not DEV.
    I did just restart my computer and the first opening is coming up full now and if I open a second it opens just below it about 1/4 inch which isn't too bad. I guess that could be do the tabs above are available. Maybe the restart cured it but not sure. I'm going to try it again and see what happens. Thanks!

    Hmm... does make me wonder what happened. And I've edited my last post as on re-reading it sounded a bit pervy. (Wasn't meant to!)

    You didn't sound pervy to me.
    Hey I took a screen shot. Hope you can see it. It is better than it was. At least now it is more up on the top of the screen. I have four windows open.

    I just added another photo of how it opens to the right.
    You can see my desktop.

    close all Chrome Windows
    open 1 Chrome window
    maximise it
    close and reopen Chrome
    does the window stay maximised ?

    I think the problem is when I open the second one. I have tried what you mentioned dozens of times.
    The first instance opens full now and the second one opens an inch or so down. It isn't consistent in what it is doing.
    Thanks,
    Susie
