Quick Tip: How To Change Window Size
Changing the size of a window
Adjusting the size and shape of a window (or windows) allows for greater flexibility when working on a computer, as well as making it easier to “drag and drop” something from one location to another. I frequently adjust my windows so that they are side-by-side.
To get started, look to the upper right corner of any open window. There you’ll see three familiar buttons – minimize (to the Taskbar), Maximize (sometimes confused with “open”), and Close and Exit (red X).
• To make a window fill the entire screen, click its Maximize button or double-click the window’s title bar.
• To return a maximized window to its former size, click its Restore button (this appears in place of the Maximize button). Or, double-click the window’s title bar.
• To resize a window (make it smaller or bigger), move your cursor to point to any of the window’s borders or corners. When the mouse pointer changes to a two-headed arrow (see picture below), drag the border or corner to shrink or enlarge the window.
Drag a window’s border or corner to resize it
A window that is maximized cannot be resized. You must restore it to its previous size first.
Note: Although most windows can be maximized and resized, there are some windows that are fixed in size, such as dialog boxes.
