    Maximize current window

    A quick question. I use Alt-Space and X to maximize the current application. What combination will maximize the currently active window? For example, I want to maximize the workbook open within Excel? Thanks, Andy.

    Try
    ALT + (hyphen) + X

    (See MSKB 126449: Keyboard shortcuts for Windows )

    Re: Maximize current window

    Just a small note: in my Excel 2002 Alt+- opens the workbook's control menu if I use the hyphen on the numeric keypad; Alt+the hyphen on the main keyboard activates some kind of search action.
    In Word, Access and PowerPoint it doesn't matter which hyphen I use.
