Sesame Street Lets go to Preschool: Windows size

Windows 7 Operating system.

When "Sesame Street Lets go to Preschool" launches the window size if is roughly 3 inches by 5 inches.  The desktop of the computer appears around it. Can I do something that will make it full screen?  Very tough for preschoolers to use.

Carolyn,

The program was designed to automatically open to the full screen.  It may be that something has been configured incorrectly with your installation of the program.  Please try right-clicking on the shortcut for the program.  Then, select the Properties option from the pop-up menu.  When you look at the Compatibility tab, are any of the options enabled on this tab?  If so, which options are enabled?

I am having the same issue with this game, and also have Windows 7.

When I open the Compatibility tab I see nothing checked. 

Should any of those boxes be checked?!

Christine,

No. There should be nothing checked on the Compatibility tab. You may need to also go to the program's installation folder and perform the same check on the program's main executable file. It may be that one of the options may have been enabled there instead.

Robby,

 

My boyfriend checked the box to make it say "Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP (Service Pack 3)" and it made it go to full screen. 

The game itself only takes up about half the screen size but it is centered, and everything else around it is black- so my little guy will not accidentally be clicking on random icons etc. 

 

I have to say I am extremely dissatisfied with this game, and the lack of early learning software available. I had assumed, with 'technology today', there would be much better and more options available. 

My iPod offers better early learning Apps than any software I've found so far!!

Christine,

The program runs in full screen mode without having anything checked on the Compatibility tab. That was why I was asking Carolyn if she had anything checked on the Compatibility tab. It sounded like she had something checked there which would cause the program to run in something other than full screen mode.

Regarding your dissatisfaction with the game, you may want to try to contact the company that makes the game. It looks like they have a way to provide feedback about their software here:
