I want to run 4 programs at once on a large screen but they need to be full blown apps. Example is I want 4 files of Excel running on all 4 quatrains of my screen and each one is fully blown. How can this be done?

Not going to happen if you want all 4 fullscreen at the same time. Whats fully blown?? Do you mean fullscreen?

Tile or cascade the files so you see each in the quadrant of your screen, from memory its View.Arrange all on 2007, think its from Help menu on 2003 but cant recall!

Tile or cascade only gives you part of the picture which means part of it is cut off. Full blow apps is full screen. That means what it looks like at full screen is what I want on just a quarter of my screen. This can be done but I don't know about Windows.

Excel spreadsheet can be any size, so your description doesn't make sense.....View>Full screen will only allow 1 spreadsheet at full view

Not sure if a multi pane manager like q dir (http://www.softwareok.com/?seite=Freeware/Q-Dir) may help. Might be worth a look.

Ah. You need to start Excel four times (Start > Run > excel). On each Windows, open only one spreadsheet.

Is there an option in ATI/nvidia software to do this ?

If you get the spreadsheets on four windows just use the Xcel resizer to make the screen show as much of the spreadsheet as you want,
