AnswerTear it out and make it bigger or smaller. AnswerMove your cursor to the bottom right of the window. You will see the cursor change appearance. Hold down the left mouse button and drag the window to the size you want. If you want the window to open this size everytime you open it hold down the Ctrl key then click the x at the upper right to close the window. AnswerI tried manual resize then F11 (fullscreen) then F11 again and closed with the "x" . when I reopened the window it was the correct size I wanted. Maybe this proc resets the registry somehow? Vista.

If the bottom of the windows is not visible (so you can't drag the corner or border to resize), change your screen resolution to a smaller size -- this will show the whole window so you can resize it and then return the resolution to the size you like. To change the screen resolution, right click anywhere on the desktop, select Properties/Screen resolution.
