  1. How do I get my screen to be big?? Not just a sliced screen. How do I get it to fit my whole screen.

    1. Hi siyabonga, it depends on the orientation of your phone and the aspect ratio of your monitor/tv. You cant expect to have your phone's display to be displayed in full screen if your phone (like my example above) is in portrait and your monitor is in landscape. For the phone's screen to be displayed in portrain mode, black bars on the side will be seen as maxing out horizontal screen estate will crop some contents on top/bottom or both.

      What i can recommend though is if your phone is in portrait put your monitor in portrait too. If your phone is in landscape, put your monitor in landscape as well. This way, black bars will be minimized.

    2. And you can also put your browser in full screen mode if you dont want to see the address bar and everything. If you dont know how to do it, just press F11 on your keyboard
