How do i make something full screen?

basically i bought a computer game lol, but when it launches it does so in a small window on my desk top, is there anyway of making it full screen, cant find anything in the manuals or the ingame options.

Sorry for this being non-bb'ing related guys.

    Or you could check something that says "Run same resolution as desktop"...

    Most games have that option...

    If its running in a little 'window', does that window have the normal windows controls in the top right hand corner, ie minimse, maximise, tile (restore down) and close? If so try hitting the maximise button (the big square one), see what that does.

    Tried bloody everything now, got it to run full screen but its still small if you get me.

    Its runnin in full screen mode but with 2 huge black bars each side like the pictures been cut off.

    I must have pressed something earlier to mess it up but i dunno what

    Well it's obviously running in a smaller resolution to your normal desktop, when the game starts it should switch either your desktop resolution to match the game or visa versa.

    The fact that it was doing it before and now it doesn't probably means you just need to reinstall your video drivers, something has gone amiss, you should be fine after that...
