To Maximize a Window
Sometimes content is not visible completely in a window. One method of displaying the entire contents
of a window is to maximize it, or enlarge the window so that it fills the entire screen. The following step
maximizes the Excel window; however, any office app’s window can be maximized using this step. Why?
A maximized window provides the most space available for using the app.
• If the Excel window is not
maximized already, tap or click the
Maximize button (shown in Figure 9
on page OFF 12) next to the Close
button on the window’s title bar to
maximize the window (Figure 12).

What happened to the Maximize
It changed to a Restore Down button, which you can use
to return a window to its size and location before you maximized it.
How do I know whether a window is maximized?
A window is maximized if it fills the entire display area and the Restore Down button is displayed on the title bar.
1. Double-tap or double-click title bar
2. Drag title bar to top of screen
