Can't decrease Word window size.

by Chaunceye / May 16, 2006 6:28 AM PDT

I must have pushed the wrong button. Starting today I can't decrease the window size of word. I can for access, powerpoint and excel. Word's window is either full screen or minimized. If I push the change window size button, the window minimizes. I have to right click and click on Maximize to reopen the page. I am using Office 2000 on a winxp OS.

deleting (or renaming if you've got it personalised and don't want to loose it) It's not very likely, but it might help. Post back if it doesn't.

I got a suggestion from another forum, Tech Support Guy. He wrote to open two windows in Word, click on windows, then click Arrange All and resize. It worked. Now Word opens in the smaller window.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
