How do you setup Angband?

I finally got Angband windows semi-decent (but still not as nice as it was on my macbook) and then I was trying to modify the constants and somehow I lost all my game window settings (and monster history), so I figure I'll take this as an opportunity to maybe learn a better way of setting up the game windows and fonts so the game looks as full screen as possible. How do you do it? What OS do you use and what screen resolution do you play at? Maybe you can take a screenshot and post it here?

All the computer games I play I enjoy in full screen mode. I don't like to see any elements that aren't part of the game on my screen. Therefore, it's really important to me to have the main Angband window take up as much of my screen as possible, and for there to be no white space anywhere on the screen (the white space above each game window is really annoying).

The way I set it up on my mac was simply to use Mac's zoom feature to zoom in on the main window, thus giving the illusion of full screen mode. But I haven't been able to get the zoom feature on Windows 10 to behave in a way I am comfortable with, so I've given up on getting Angband to be full screen this way. I was able to adjust the fonts to make the main window take up most of the screen, but there were still white bars at the top of the main window and the monster window to the right of the main window. I guess there is just no way to get rid of them.

Here is how I got it to look on my Mac:

I guess the easiest way to get it how it was on my mac is to maybe find a good program that can zoom the whole screen the way MacOS does (the windows zoomer is cumbersome and annoying, but maybe I just need to give it more time to get used to it).
