HI everyone. I know that there are many people in this forum who really know how to handle computers and computer problems.

I just need help in this one little thing.
See, A year ago I clicked something unknowingly and caused my window to get bigger :eek: . Now in the top right hand corner of my window where I can change the size; I can either minimize it completely (to my tool bar) or I can restore it to the large size or fill up my window. There must be a way to get it back to that happy middle ground right? I want it so that I can have the size go from minimised (tool bar) to middle then to full...

Does anyone know how to help me out with this step by step :confused: I'm practically computer illiterate http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/bash.gif I'l be online for the next two hours...

Hi RE! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Unless you've got some weird glitchy Winders thing going on, you should have three buttons up there: the leftmost one minimizes, the middle one toggles between "maximize" and "restore down," and the right-most one closes the winder.

Trick is to use the middle toggle button to set the winder to "restore down." You can tell because the middle icon'll change to a single winder pic instead of two cascading winders.

Once you've got the toggle button set to "restore down," try dragging the edges to resize the way you like it.

Hope this helps http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I've chosen the theme of compassion and I need some poems or song lyrics that show compassion. For more info check out the thread I started with the subject of poems and compassion...
