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.

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

I cant scrol down because my lap top's screen is too far moved to the right. how do I drag the screen to the left?


There are more than a couple ways to get your screen focus back...

1. If you can click at the top of the screen and drag it to the left. Once you can see the edge of the screen you should be able to resize it within your parameters.

2. You can double-click on the top of the screen to make it full screen.

3. Right-click on the Task Bar and select Cascade Windws to see if you can get it back in focus.

4. Last resort, you may be able to change the screen resolution so that you get more resources on the screen.

Hope this helps!

Windows start bar has completely gone


Sympton

You cannot see the taskbar (which contains the "Start" button) anywhere on your desktop.

Causes

  1. The taskbar may be hiding at the bottom of the screen after being accidentally resized.

  2. If the presentation display was changed, the taskbar may have moved off of the visible screen (Windows 7 and Vista only).

  3. The taskbar may be set to "Auto-hide" (Windows XP with Service Pack 2 only).

Solutions

  1. Put the mouse pointer on the bottom border of your screen.

    • If the pointer turns into a double-arrow doublearrow.gif, click and drag upwards.
    • If your taskbar isn't hiding at the bottom of the screen, try moving the mouse to the right, left, and top edges, looking for the double-arrow.

  2. Press the Windows logo key and the P key on your keyboard to bring up the presentation display mode options.

    • Make sure "Computer Only" is selected.
    • Use the arrow keys to toggle between options and Enter to select the correct display mode.

  3. Press the Windows key on the keyboard to bring up the Start Menu

    • Right-Click on the taskbar and select Properties.
    • Toggle the 'Auto-Hide the taskbar' checkbox and click Apply.
    • If it is now checked, move the cursor to the bottom, right, left, or top of the screen and the taskbar should re-appear.
    • Repeat step three to return to your original setting.

Have you tried double clicking on the bar right at the top of the screen next to the minimize, maximise, close buttons? By double clicking in this area it'll change the size/shape of the browser screen, you can then reposition the window to the top left of your screen and then click and drag the bottom right hand side of his window once the cursor turns into a double headed arrow.
