    Default Make my website fit any screen

    Is it possible to make my website automatically stretch to fit any sized screen? I have three sizes done but the largest appears on my 24" screen with a white border, with the old programme I used it would stretch to fill the actual screen automatically.

    Hi bigjohnt & welcome to TalkGraphics. It's not possible to achieve your desired effect apart from creating a site using a presentation. There are drawbacks to this however as:

    1: All pages on the site need to be of nearly equal space.
    2: Your site needs to be letter box size widescreen or 4x3
    3: The site would be a supersite, which loads all the sites assets at once, which isn't ideal on an overly large website.
    4: Text would be hard to read on mobile devices.

    You could try Web Export Options > Supersite > Page Transitions: Instant > Scale to Fit Screen.

    As Egg says, keeps all the pages to same width to avoid the pages scaling differently.

    Welcome to TalkGraphics

    The only way to do what you want is as Acorn suggests Fit to Screen. This is a good solution if your pages are about one screen of information. If your pages are long then this is not a good solution and I don't think you will be happy with results.

    I recommend having your page and background color the same, then if there is space on either side of the page in a large browser the design still works and the page floats in the background color.
