I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: omg wtf aarggh! Cannot Intelligent figure this Window! How to resize/max window?

When I see something like that... and I have seen it too many times with IE(LOL!), I shut the computer off and re-start, which usually does the trick.  Does the problem still exist?  Were you last trying to download a program or do you think it happened from an auto-update?

Here's a nut for ya... My father-in-law's videocard is fried (Dell Precision M90... so I already know I need to cook the card at 200' C for 10 mins for it to work right again, but I'm lazy!) and now only does 1800x1200 resolution.

i can't seem to resize the window to one of my apps, if i click the square like normal to get out of full screen, it minimizes and can no longer be brought back up even though it shows the app as still open in the taskbar, if i disable the full screen mode in the app (right click on its icon from the system tray and preferences - start full screen mode) it will again load the app and immediately go down into the task bar with no option to resize, move or maximize. if i right click on it from the task bar i can only select close or minimize in which it is already.

Don't know what I did. Starting today, I can't resize a window with Word on it. I can in other parts of Office 2000 like excel or access or any other application. When I click the reduce window size button in the upper right corner, the window minimizes. I have to right click on the button in the task bar and then click Maximize to bring the window up. It is either full size or nothing. How can I restore the ability to resize the window?

A:can't resize Word window

Welcome to TSG, Chauncey.

With Word running, try opening a new window (Window menu), then use Arrange All. This should give you a horizontally split screen, so you can close one window & then drag and/or resize the other.

Failing that, does anything happen when you doubleclick Word's title bar ("filename - Microsoft Word")?

Hey guys,

I have an application window that won't resize. It will fill the whole screen and when it is minimized it shrinks in to the task bar. You can't resize it. I closed the application, shut it down, restarted and re-opened and it continues to have no medium to it. Any way to fix this?

A:Application Window won't resize

So the window is either minimized or full screen but nothing inbetween?

Clicking on the middle button on the top right of the window (next to the close button) doesn't fix it? (Tool tip will say "Restore Down") Or also try double clicking the task bar?

A:how can i resize a window and have it stick?

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Right-click the shortcut for the application under All Programs in your Start folder and choose Properties.

Go to the Run field under the Shortcut tab and choose Maximized, then click Apply followed by OK.

You may need to do this for each application you use and you have three choices:

Maximized, which fills the screen.

Minimized, which minimises the window to the task bar.

Normal, which fills part of the screen.

How can i get the window of a program to stay the same size that i resize it to.
I have Act and when i create a new email message the window is very small. I do
not want to maximize, I just want it to be a little bigger. I resized to the size I want but
when i create a new email it defaults back to the smaller size. Is there a trick to get the
windows to stick to that size?

A:Resize the program window

Try holding down the Ctrl Key while dragging it to the size you want. Close the window while still holding the Ctrl key. It's supposed to remember the place you closed it.. Works for me about half the time. Another place says to use the Shift key instead of the Ctrl Key..
Now I read that it's the CTRL key for XP and the Shift key for 2000. Who knows..

Is there a way to make IE windows go full size automatically. The fact that a new window opens small is the only thing that keeps me from using IE. Everytime I open something in a new window or click a link I have to maximize the window and it is such a bother that I just use Netscape.

A:IE Window resize automatically

Hi irregularguy...welcome to TSF...

please try the following:

- Open Internet Explorer
- Find one of the corners of the window and then drag it to full size...repeat with any other corner so that the window fills the screen (don't select the maximize option between the minimize and close icons at the top right of the window)
- Once you have done that, press and hold the ctrl key and then select File -> Close/Exit

Relaunch IE and the window should be that size.

Hope that helps....also, if you have an IE shortcut in your quick launch tray, you can right click it and select Properties and change the option next to 'Run' to maximize

I use the audio program Linn Kazoo. When I first installed it several weeks ago, its window opened a normal size, but since an uninstall/reinstall for unrelated reasons - now three times - that's no longer been the case. Kazoo's window now always opens wide and off the bottom of the screen, down through the bottom taskbar. See the screenshot. The way I adjust window size permanently in Windows is to hold the Cntl key while resizing, but unlike other programs, such as Opera browser last night, Kazoo refuses to hold the resize on the next open or the next computer session. I've run Yamicsoft Win 8 Mgr and scannow but that didn't help. I posted the problem on the Linn forum, but someone else with the same size monitor - 1920x1200 - hasn't seen this. This is Windows 8.1 Pro x64, dpi=115%. Any ideas? Thanks,

A:Program's window won't hold its resize

Try holding the Shift key while resizing.

Also you can set the size and position, then save it as a custom size. You can hit a hotkey to set size and position using my MoveIt freeware. Unfortunately it only has single monitor support as that's all I have to test with. You may download from
Miles Ahead's Windows Downloads

Note on Windows 8, you probably need to run MoveIt As Administrator. Documentation is in About Box and Readme.txt.

Edit: ( See hotkey z for setting a custom size and position for one of the hotkeys )

Hello all. Just found an answer here to a problem I had and linked the solution to some other similar posts.

I have a glitch that I am hoping someone can help me with.

I auto hide my taskbar
I have a window that I size from the top of my window to the bottom.
I use "switch user"
When I return to my user the window size has reduced in height from the bottom of the screen the width of an un hid taskbar.

the attached pic is showing the monitor from top to bottom. As one can see the window is not full height but shortened the size of the taskbar.

Sorry if this is an exsisting thread.

I've recently bought a new 15.3" full HD laptop, and today I sat down with a mate to play an old java game that we've long enjoyed. Problem is, the game is tiny on this laptop and doesn't seem to get any bigger even when I set the resolution to its lowest.

Is there any way to resize the game so we can actually see what's going on?


A:Java window tiny- any way to resize?

Probably the game does not recognise the screen dimensions being reported to it by your PC screen driver. It's too old and would need to be re-compiled. Some suggestions....

After changing the current screen resolution, did you actually reboot before trying the game?
Does the game need re-installing on your new hardware?
Does the game have any settings you can adjust from within it?
Is there a more recent download of the game?
What happens if you change the values in the 'embed' java statement of the link you gave?
Does the game or the author have a forum where you can get advice?

My best opinion for the most flexible solution is.....
Try running the game in a virtual PC where you can fool the game to think it is running on, for example, XP - it may simply be incompatible with win 8.1 or whatever you now have http://www.lifehacker.co.uk/2010/12/19/five-best-virtual-machine-applications

OS: Windows XP Media Center Edition 2002 Service Pack 2

I use the Media Center program included with WinXP MCE to watch and record television on my PC. The problem is that I cannot resize the viewing window.

This just happened a couple of days ago. Until then, I haven't had a problem. I have not installed any updates or patches that would obviously impact media center. (Of course, not all these things are always obvious.)

I've searched the MS Knowledge Base, done numerous internet searches, and can't find anything that comes close to addressing the problem.

Here's what happens:
I can only maximize or minimize the window. (Restore is either not available or has the same result as minimize.)

I cannot drag the corner of the maximized window, because it is not viewable in maximized mode.

My screen resolution is already set to maximum (I have a widescreen monitor), so that is not an option.

As a last resort, I was willing to re-install Media Center (using control panel-->add or remove programs), but it was not listed. Then I realized it might be part of the operating system. So I tried control panel-->add or remove programs-->add/remove windows components. Media Center does not appear as a separate component.

I have a feeling it might be something very simple, but I give up. I don't mind if I come across as a dummy, as long as I can resize the window!

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Just reinstalled Windows 7 x64 (no SP1) and I noticed a weird problem. It happens everywhere, but I can best explain it with Task Manager. If you have Task Manager open and you try to resize the window with your mouse, the top tabs (Applications, Processes, Services etc.) flicker.

I have "show windows contents while dragging" enabled. I have Windows classic theme, but I asked a friend with the default Windows 7 theme and he has the same problem.

I don't remember having this problem before re-installing Windows 7 and I have the same chipset/video drivers.

What could be the problem?

Hope you can help... thanx!

Why do you not have SP1 installed. It is way overdue and would likely affect performance, security and stability. It isn't even Win7 without it. Like an engine overhaul, it becomes the engine.

Hi all,

Disclaimer: I'm new to this forum. Sorry for my bad English (not my native language). I'm desperate for a solution.

Not sure if this is the correct section to post the issue, but I'm having a hard time finding out how can I resize a window past the monitor's resolution. Like moving the window at the bottom then dragging from top margin (keep doing this as much as I want). Apparently Windows does not allow me to do that (window stops from resizing when it reaches the physical screen resolution). Disabled the Aero Snap, just in case...

Additional info:
OS - Windows 7 SP1 Pro x86
Window to be resized - IE
I need at least 2000px height for the IE window even though it is not visible for me.
I use this for some browser automation tests with Selenium and I resize the window automatically from within the script. Works fine on my XP system but gloriously fails on W7.

Any ideas?

As the title says.

I was messing around with some custom themes (I know, I know, but I'm pretty familiar with the process and I try to take extra precautions) and for what seems like no reason, I cannot resize Explorer (not IE, the actual file explorer) windows and if I attempt to use Aero Snap, absolutely nothing happens--I can maximize, minimize, etc. though. However, if I use any other program, I can resize and I can do snap, so obviously the problem is only with Windows Explorer. I figured I would do a system restore because that has solved any customization problems I've had 99% of the time, but even that doesn't fix my issue.

Another weird issue (besides System Restore not doing anything) is that I even installed another custom theme because I figure that whatever files it gave me would probably fix up the explorer issue--and now the theme is installed but I still can't resize or use snap on Explorer.

Doing a clean install or what have you is NOT an option, so does anyone know what may have been changed and how I can fix it?

I have two annoying problems with Windows 10 Pro at the moment, I have two monitors, one connects directly to the PC via the HDMI port on the graphics card. The other monitor connects via a DVI to VGA converter and goes into one of the ports on a 4 port KVM switch. This set-up allows me to run Windows 10 with two monitors (one very wide screen) and two other PC's using just one of the screens via the KVM (these two PC's run non MS OS's).

Now the issue I have on the windows PC is that the desktop icon keep moving after every reboot. I have the desktop icons setup as I want down either left hand side and the right hand side of one monitors and the desktop showing on the other monitor does not have any icons on it. But when I start the PC or reboot the PC all the desktop icons have moved and are spread out in to areas across the entire desktop showing on both monitors.

The other issue I have is that if I have a program open (not full screen but in a window), I then use the KVM to go to one of the other PC's when I come back to the Windows Desktop the program window(s) I had open and been shrunk down to around half there size. This happen with Firefox, Google Chrome, Word 2013, Excel 2013, Remote Desktop Windows. I normally have several Remote desktops open which I open in windows rather than full screen.

My Graphics card is a Nvidia GT 730 and have upgraded the driver through several updates but that has made no difference.

Any thoughts suggestions?

I'm using Windows 7 Professional 64bit on a Toshiba Satellite L50-A. Windows Explorer was working perfectly until now, in which whenever I resize Windows Explorer so that the window is smaller and doesn't fill the entire screen, the window flickers and then crashes. I have tried terminating and restarting Windows Explorer and even tried restarting my computer but it's still the same. I am up to date on my windows updates (except for the Windows 10 upgrade), but I have not done anything with the Toshiba Service Station updates. I also ran Microsoft Security Essentials and it said that there were no viruses and such. How do I fix this problem with windows explorer? Will upgrading to Windows 10 help? (my last resort)

A:Windows Explorer crashes whenever I try to resize/snap the window

I would start with two things. Do a SFC /SCANNOW in an elevated command window. Search this site for a tutorial on it if you need help, or ask here. Meanwhile find and download the latest video driver at Toshiba's site. When the SFC is done, uninstall the existing video driver and install the new one.

Sorry if this has been asked a million times. I tried searching for the answer in the forum to no avail.

I have windows xp and am using Outlook Express 6 (on one of my computers, and I know others having the same problem on similar setups).

It is retarded if Microsoft would not let us resize or modify or enlarge or expand or maximize (providing food for future forum searchers, ) the insert attachment window. I guess they would do that in order to give an incentive to upgrade to the non-express outlook programs (which don't seem to have any such limitation). But still, that's lame. Hopefully it's just me that's lame and retarded.

I also would like to change the default view for the window to "details," but can't seem to be able to do that either.

A few weeks ago when I opened Photoshop Elements, its window was wide enough to cover most of both my monitors, and I can no longer resize it by dragging the borders of the window as I have always done in the past. It will minimize, maximize and restore but will not resize. I have tried using the system menu Size option. This moves the cursor to the edge of the window but does not allow me to select or move the border. I cannot remember messing with any Windows 7 settings, cannot find any Photoshop specific settings for this issue, and cannot find any threads for a similar problem. Help would be appreciated.

At the risk of sounding super obvious and insulting, have you shut down your machine (not sleep or hibernate) and restarting it?

If so, try going to Programs and Features in the Control Panel, click on Photoshop elements, and see if there is a repair option. If not, go ahead and delete it, then reinstall it.

Thanks for all the help. I want to make my shorcuts start programs and windows (In WIndows Xp Pro SP3) at a certain position and with a certain size.

I gave the odd numbers in the example so that people responding will understand that I want CUSTOM SIZES. I know how to set the shortcuts to start maximized and minimized and also window tiling. That's not what I'm talking about. Does anyone know of shortcut switch that I can use?

I seems to me to be a real case of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing as whoever designed these two items didn't exchange details. This was my original query "
Using Windows 10 / .wma & .wmv "properties" fields / Folder and file display columns. There are two fields in the properties
box "Content provider" and "Group description" which do not have corresponding columns within the folders. As I use both boxes, what do I do>" Nothing has changed!

Hi Everyone,

I am not sure which Windows update caused this, but ever since that download, whenever I close a window, the little blue disc keeps turning until the window DOES finally close. (Hope you understand what I'm saying.) This happens after closing EACH window, ALL the time.

Essentially, it takes a few extra secs for the closed window to really close. It's irritating/frustrating because I don't know how to fix it. I've put as much of my comp's info in my profile as I know or could find. Have been working with comps for six or so years. Not a total dummy, help alot of friends , and always reaching to learn more.

Have never seen this problem anywhere or it would be fixed by now, lol Can't STAND the waiting it causes til I can move onto something else.

Any suggestions?? PLEASE???

I thank you for your time.

i couldnt think of how to describe it for the title easily and I am about to go home to maybe tomorrow I will work it out.

My Vista box is currently demonstrating curious behaviour. When I open IE7 I select a favorite and it opens a new window with that favorite in it. If I do a search with my default provider in the original window, the search results appear in a new tab in the second window.

The second window does not display this behaviour. It works normally with my standard settings - open favorites in the current tab.

Again, favorites chosen in the first window continue to appear in the second window. Search results too.

Running IE7 in safe mode stops this behaviour but I have not installed any new software and I have removed all my temporary internet files/addon settings etc.

Any ideas would be great. Funny old game eh
