  A method to enable the close-up of the presentation space of the existing application program

  Disclosed is a method to enable the close-up of the presentation space of the existing application program such as Internet Explorer(*1), Netscape Communicator(*2).

A shared presentation space should be utilized effectively on Real-time Collaboration system because of the following reasons:
1.The performance and the sending data amount depends on the size of the shared presentation space.
2.The size of the display is limited.

Usually an application program consists of a presentation area and a area without the direct relation to application information such as a title bar, a menu bar, and frames of a window. For example, a web browser consists of an area displays a web site, and a title bar, a menu bar, a tool bar, a status bar and a window etc.

Therefore, if the area without the direct relation to application information is removed, the area where only the part displays application information will be enlarged, the amount of displays of application information will also increase and a presentation space can be utilized effectively.

The purpose of this method is to provide the following features:
1.enlarged display feature removing the area without the direct relation to application information and enlarging the area where only the part displays application information(hereafter, enlarged display mode)
