Thanks for the above Tony.
A slight misunderstanding...

The native screen res of the Acer monitor is 1280 x 1024, my custom MDF
runs RPCEmu at 1280 x 900 so I can have, not only the Win Title bar, but
the Win Taskbar and a small amount of Win screen to get at the line of
particular apps I have pinned to the Desktop just above the Task bar.

I quite often click URLs out of RO into Firefox, and Copy/Paste text from
RO to Win WP or Text editor.

And yes I use the Window tool to toggle to fullscreen as you also note.

Thanks for the thought though, appreciated.


PS: Hope to see you in my next Q thread See a CD in RPCEmu.
