MacBook Air Full Screen Display

Why does my MacBook Air not go full screen when the display is set at 1440 x 900?  I have to set the display at 1024 x 640 to get a full screen display.  Thanks.

Hi forever free,
I apologize, I'm a bit unclear on the exact nature of your issue. Depending on your model of MacBook Air (post-2010), the native fullscreen resolution should be 1440 by 900 (16:10 aspect ratio) for the 13 inch and 1366 by 768 (16:9 aspect ratio) for the 11 inch.
