Help with the User Interface in Mathematica 5.1.1


    Hi!  I'm new to Mathematica, and I'm currently working with  v5.1.1. 
I've been searching through messages, documentation, etc... but I can't find 
any workable solutions to what should be simple questions about the UI.  And 
right now, I only have two:


1.  How can I set the default size for the Notebook windows?

    I've tried to set "Preferences / Notebook Options / Window Properties / 
Window Size".  The documentation says that this is what these variables are 
for.  But changing them doesn't seem to have any visible effect.  New 
Notebook windows still get created at the exact same size.



2.  How can I get Mathematica to start up maximized?

    It starts up *almost* maximized, but I'd like it to actually *be* 
maximized.  Is there any way to do this?




    Thanks, guys, for any help you can provide!
