Maximize button wont let me make screen bigger


That's not what maximize does. It merely enlarges the current window to full screen size.

Tip

Close All Windows Programs instantly


A cool tip to minimize and maximize all your active windows programs. You can do all using your mouse, but if you want to do this with keyboard then simply press Windows key+M to minimize all active programs and later maximize it using Windows key+Shift+M.
If you want to minimize the all active windows programs one by one then use the shortcut by pressing Alt+Space+N keys and sequentially maximize the active windows programs using shortcut Alt+Space+X keys.

15 Best Windows 7 Tips and Hacks


1. Use Keyboard Shortcuts Using the mouse, you can drag-‘n-dock windows to either side of the screen, or drag it to the top to maximize it. These keyboard shortcuts are even faster:
  • Win+Left Arrow and Win+Right Arrow dock the window to the left and right side of the screen
  • Win+Up Arrow and Win+Down Arrow maximize and restore/minimize
  • Win+M minimizes everything
  • Alt+Up, Alt+Left Arrow, Alt+Right Arrow navigate to parent folder, or browse Back and Forward through folders in Explorer
  • Win+Home minimizes/restores all open windows except the active window
  • Alt+Win+# accesses the Jump List of program number ‘#’ on the taskbar

I have no idea how to operate a linux os


Trying out different operating systems can be a lot of fun. It can be frustrating at times, but for those of us who like to try new things, the frustration is part of the challenge, thus part of the fun!

Linux is a great option because there is so much free stuff out there. Almost all of the Linux distributions have great documentation also. You mentioned Ubuntu, so let's stick with that for now. If you downloaded the current stable version, 8.10, then there is a site that should answer all of your questions.

https://help.ubuntu.com/8.10/newtoubuntu/C/index.html

The above link takes you to a page that links you to the docs for those who are new to Ubuntu Linux. Everything from computer basics to the role of the administrator account.

Happy reading, and happy experimenting.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.
