    I am a new mac user. I am trying to figure out how to enlarge the screen image so it fills the entire screen.I am aware that I can hold control and scroll with the mouse but that moves the toolbar out of view.I also have found a way(unintentionally) that it minimizes to the lower left side of the screen and when I enlarge it it stays on the left side of the screen. I end up dragging it back to center Any advice?
    Thank you.

    The green knob on the top left side of a window maximizes a window, or use the bottom right corner to manually enlarge a window.

    CTRL+scroll is a screen zoom, so you zoom into the screen, like a digital zoom with those digital cameras.
