If you mean the wallpaper, you will need to go into the desktop properties and set it to stretch the image. If you mean the desktop will need to change the screen resolution.

Standard monitors use dimentions like 1024x768, but a wide screen uses one like 1280x768. If you use a resolution that doesn't match the aspect ratio of the monitor it will fill in the extra space with black space and no desktop.

Vista desktop in't covering the screen

This typically means that you have your resolution set to a size that is not optimal for the monitor you are using. For example, if you have a modern 24-inch monitor that can display 1920 x 1080 resolution and you have Vista set to use only 1024 x 768 resolution, it will use only part of the screen rather than all of it. The way to resolve this is to go into the Display control panel applet and set the appropriate resolution.

How do I make it so my windows fully open every time?

Not sure that I understand correctly...You want to open a program and want that window maximized (= filling the whole screen?)
Right-Click on your Program shortcut (either on the Desktop or in the Start menu) and go down to "Properties". The menu "Run:" is per default set to "Normal Window". Change to "Maximized" and this program will always open in full screen.
This is working for Windows XP, Vista and 7.

Let me know if you have any questions.

How do I make the page to cover the whole screen?

Cut a larger sheet of paper. Just kidding!
What 'page'. Do you mean Windows desktop? Or an application within Windows?
If the desktop is not filling the screen, the monitor should have an 'auto' setting within its menus.
My Samsung monitor (different model) has both a menu button and an auto button.
If you are referring to an application window (you can see some of the desktop around the outside of your application, just maximise your application.

My picture is not the full size of the screen

if you're using Vista, you can right click on your desktop and choose personalize then choose Desktop Background. at the bottom part of the Desktop Background page you will see options on how you want the picture to be seen. choose the first one, which is Fit to screen, if you want the picture to be seen in the whole screen.
