Maximizing App Windows to Full Screen?

i am a switcher and have had my new 14"G4iB for about ten days. it has been stellar and has been a great experience in every way. i do have a few things which continue to bother me. one is that every time i open a browser, app, or window it is always in a semi-minimized mode.
it might take up 50 or 75% of the screen, but it is never 100% of the screen. that is one thing i loved in windows, i love having a full screen browser.

is there anyway to maximize my windows so they fill the full screen? is there any way to set the os to open windows to full screen?
