Help. Cannot restore minimized window to normal state.

I was working with microsoft photo editor, at one point when I opene photo editor it started as minimized icon on taskbar. When I restore it, it changes to maximized. I cannot restore it to normal state where I can resize it and look at other open windows to work with. Can anyone help fix this problem and explain how it happenned so I can prevent it from happening again? Thanks in advance.

Oniket, Right click the microsoft photo editor shortcut, choose Properties, under the Shortcut tab change the Run: to Normal Window using the dropdown arrow button.
