Windows expand to full size during drag.

To move a window around on my wide laptop screen, I normally left click the bar at the top of the window to drag it, but recently the windows will enlarge to maximum size as soon as I click it.. That's very annoying when working with graphic. It even happens while moving a small messenger window. Does anyone know what may be causing this to happen? Thanks in advance.

How do I get my screen back to normal. it is too far over to the right. I cant hit the maximize box


What computer are you using?

On a Windows pc use the key combination ALT+TAB to switch between active windows

Then either:

Double click the Title bar of the window which is partly off-screen

Or - press the F11 key

Or - Click and Drag the title bar to the top of the screen then release the mouse button

One of these methods should toggle between full screen and where it is now

Or - Hover your mouse over a corner or edge of the troublesome window until the cursor becomes a double ended arrow - Then click and drag to re-size the window - Then click and drag the title bar to get the full window back in view

Lenovo b640 model the tool bar is showing on the top but as is drag it on the bottom it is hide or not showing but it is showing on the right and left of the windows 7


Hi
Try right clicking on a part of the task bar and checking that the "Lock Task Bar" is not ticked in the menu that appears, untick it if it is. It shouldn't be as you can drag it to the left or right of the screen. Then click "Properties" and check that the "auto-hide task bar" is not ticked. Again it shouldn't be but untick if it is.
In these circumstances you should be able to drag the task bar to all four sides of the screen and it should remain visible at all times. If it is still not showing at the bottom of your screen, I would suspect that your graphics card is setup to show a larger screen than the actual screen can display, and you need to right click somewhere on the desk top and look at "Screen Resolution" (win7) to see what the settings are and what you can change them to to try and bring the task bar back into view when it is on the bottom.
Do any of your programmes lose their lower parts when viewed full screen?
On today's wide screen profile machines, I often find it better to have the task bar on the side. It takes a little getting used to at first, but after a while I found it more natural than at the bottom.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Sidebar has suddenly moved to side affecting size of screen. How do I return it to bottom???


You are probably talking about the windows Task bar that normally resides at the bottom of the screen:
.
Two ways of moving this task ba, to top/bottom/letft/right position of the display:
  1. Move the cursor on a blank/inactive area on the task bar, usually in the largest blank area towards the right, click and hold the right mouse button and drag the Task bar to the bottom of the screen.
  2. Go to the Task Bar 'Properties' (You can get this context menu by clicking the left mouse button after putting the cursor on a blank/inactive area on the task bar) and change the 'Task bar location on screen' option.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go.

Somehow I shrunk my Safari Window down to a quarter of a screen... I'd like to get it back to taking up close to the full screen and I don't know what to do... since I don't know what I did to shrink it.


Usually shrinkage happens when clicking the round green circle located top-left.
To fix, click on the tiny diagonal bars on the lower-right corner of the window and drag around to obtain the window size you want.
I hope this helps.

Black Bars each side of my new monitor wide screen


Right Click on an open spot on your desktop.

If your Operating System is Windows XP, choose Properties from the menu box that pops up when you right click.

A new window will open up. Click the Settings tab at the top right.
On this menu you should see a slider bar near the bottom left under "Screen Resolution". Left Click and hold the mouse button on the grey button and move it on the slider bar over to the right one spot. Then click the Apply button on the bottom right of the box. The screen may flicker for a second and your desktop will change size. If the screen covers the whole monitor and the black bars are gone, that may be the correct resolution. Click OK on the box that has a timer and is asking if you want to keep the screen that size. If the screen does not look correct, click No and you may need to slide the button one more spot over and try the next resolution and Apply until it looks correct.

Under the slider bar as you move it over a line at a time will be 2 numbers like this 1024 X 800, and when you move the bar over the numbers will change. I believe the optimal resolution setting numbers for the 20" monitor you have should be 1680 X 1050 for the widescreen. You may want to try that setting. If it looks too small, try sliding the bar to the left and try each resolution setting.

Here's a screetshot of what the Box with the slider bar looks like: http://technophobik.co.uk/vxp_control_panel/f007_settings.asp

If you have Windows Vista, (it is similiar to XP):

Click the Start Button and click Control Panel in the Start Menu
Click Appearance and Personalization in the new window that opens up.
Click Personalization, then click Display Settings at the bottom
A new box will pop up with the grey button on a slider bar near the bottom left under "Resolution" Slide the button to the right to the next line one spot over on the slider bar and then click the Apply button. The screen may flicker and change the size of your desktop. Click OK if the screen looks correct or click No if it doesn't look correct and try sliding the button over one more line.
