How do i make the window in my browser take up the entire screen real estate? Not by going full screen but stretch? I did this on my old computer but can't figure it out.

Below are examples.

See how its not using the entire screen but just a portion?

Thanks, i'm not talking about making it full screen with f11. It is the same size even if I press f11. Here's screen shot when I make it full screen.

@Duncical

It's the website designers to set the size of the website, unfortunately given most users are currently running on 4:3 monitors (1600x1200, 1280x1024 etc) monitors, then most websites are designed to look properly on them, and therefore wasted space on widescreen 16:9 (1366x768, 1920x1080 etc)

So, long story short, until most users have 16:9 users then the website will cater to the majority of users which is 4:3. I mean, can you imagine having a 4:3 monitor and having to either missing out on the words on either side of the screen, or pull the zoom back, and then having tiny font?..

Thanks, I know there is a way to fix it because I did a few years back and had same resolution monitor. I just can't remember how, I know it was either in firefox or windows CP.

if you have a mouse with a scroll wheel press and hold the Ctrl button on the keyboard and roll the wheel up and down to suit the website you are on.
