Is there a way to get emacs to open up full screen under X-windows. I
am using emacs version 21.2.1.
Hope that help

>> I think that depends on your window manager - what are you using?
Thanks for all the answers thus far. I appreciate it.

Other issues: you likely don't want Emacs to extend (below) the kicker
panel, which can also move to the side of your desktop.
Some window managers like sawfish are able to remember the last window
configuration for an application - so you can run emacs, maximise to
full screen and then (using the wm menus/commands) save the state of
the application and next time you run emacs it will be opened to the
same size/position. However, this can cause problems with some emacs
functions - for example, you need to do a little extra tweaking if you
use speedbar, otherwise you end up with a speedbar frame which is the
same size as your normal emacs frame.
The suggestion for the /Cdefaults settings did work. Thank you very
