    I wanted to play SNES games on my Mac. I installed an emulator and now I can get the ones I want. The only problem is that the games are only about 6 x 6 inch square on the screen. How can I make them full screen, or at least larger than what they are now? Thanks.

    Which emulator are you using?

    I'm pretty sure SNES9X has full screen capability, with stretching to fill your screen options as well.

    I can't check now because I'm at work.

    Definitely download SNES9X if that's not the one you are playing with. It's stable and has been around forever.

    Try using System Preferences to reduce the resolution of your monitor.

    Thanks you guys. I couldn't get it to full screen, but changing the resolution did the trick.

    Changing your resolution is not the way to go here. It'll screw up your desktop icons and is way too cumbersome in the long run.

    Seriously, get SNES9X for OS X. Prior to loading a ROM or with your ROM paused, click the menubar 'SNES9X', then 'Preferences'. On the Graphics tab, click full screen. Done.
