My notepad document window is too deep and I can't "grab" the bottom edge to pull it up.

other windows are fine. It's just the notepad window. It's happened before but I just can't remember how I fixed it.

Do you see the X in the top right corner still? If yes, click the square to the left of it.

If it's hidden behind the taskbar, right click on the taskbar-->properties-->check the box to 'auto hide,' click apply and ok. After a second, the taskbar will shrink down at the bottom, and you should be able to grab notepad. Then you can uncheck the box to autohide the taskbar.

1. aford10: There is no "properties" option in the taskbar.
2. ak3085: "Restore" doesn't do it either.

Ahhh. I thought you were referring to the Notepad taskbar. Yep, your fix worked. Thanks.

You know, it funny. And a little embarrassing. I've been doing this since 1988 and yet there are those pesky little things that seldom crop up that stymie me.

Thanks again. Just joined the forum. Great resource.
