RE: XyWrite in full screen mode on Win7 32 bit

Oh, yes, I see. I'm used to Tame, which does allow

It might or might not be worth giving TameDOS a whirl. Installation takes about 5 minutes.
Unfortunately, the window is about 1/6 of the screen area and I cannot expand the window.  Restoring updoes not change the window size.

It's not a bug, it's a feature. Use the "windowed" version and make it take up as much of the screen as you like. (Otherwise, I think the issue is hardware-determined.)

Although my company long since abandoned XyWrite to my great disappointment, very infrequently I need to research old XyWrite files.  Today was one of those days.  Unfortunately, my computer operates on Win7 (32 bit), which is not all that friendly to XyWrite.  I somehow figured out a while back how to get it to run in a small window on the screen, but it cannot be opened up to full screen.  When I try to open it up using enter, I get an error message that says This system does not support full screen mode.
Is there anything I can do about that or am I stuck?
