Window opens minimised

by Ben Ford / July 2, 2012 2:29 AM PDT

When I click for a file the window opens minimised - say one quarter of screen vertically. I am sure there is a setting to adjust this; could anybody help ?

Windows XP SP3
Winfast PX6200 TC TDH

Thanks. Ben

Do you mean minimised ? No ! I mean about quarter screen. My mistake.

Well that's not minimised.

That's just opening to a certain size. Minimize in Windows programming is where it's on the taskbar, notification bar or even hidden.

Try the usual. Open it and resize it to bigger (do not maximize it!) and then close it. If nothing is amiss then the next time it will open at the last size you had it.
