Instead of clicking on top-right corner, hover over edge of page and when the double-headed arrow appears drag the page to whatever size you like - the next time you open a page it should be at your chosen size.

Thanks Techon just did that on my MSN mail homepage and works but then when back to google went on another site pressed a link and smaller screen again?? this never happened before always went to full screen.Must be a default for web pages??

Yes, I think there is a default size for web pages, for instance I use a 22" wide-screen monitor, if I click on the small square to make the pages full-screen I end up with huge margins either side of the page.

Your screen resolution settings might also have something to do with it. My screen resolution is 1680x1050.

Set one of your Google pages as per your MSN home page - I think this should affect all Google pages after that.

You say, "when i log on to net home page is fine"... I'm assuming this page is maximised?

If that's correct do the following;

Restorethe maximised window to a "normal" one, using the button next to the "x".

Drag this window to the size you want.

Maximise the window again.

Windows that open via a link from the main page should now open to the size you dragged it to.

Hope this helps.
