Dear Friends

Can any one kindly guide me how to control the size of the window, because now the right hand top corner gets hidden behind the frame and my cursor cannot reach either closing sign or side scroller for moving up and down

Thanks and regards

Assuming its windows 7, double click the titlebar. That will maximize the window.

hello and welcome!

Basically it is adjusted with moniter configuration buttons as you can see it on moniter where it is located. Try to adjust from there.

assuming you're using windows 7: you can right click on the taskbar empty area and select one of the following -
cascade windows
show windows stacked
show windows side by side
one of these will bring down the windows size to a preset level. from there you can rezise by dragging window borders
or right click on a title bar, select 'size', use keybpard arrows to resize the windows.
iirc on xp, you can use 'cascade windows' and then resize.

Set the window to the required size, hold down CTRL and close the window. It will then open the position it was closed.

you could try this:
if you can right click on a title bar (or press alt+space bar to bring up the title bar right click menu): right click > select 'size' > press right arrow > press left arrow/hold it down till the right margin comes to view > press esc key to let go.
make sure you resize the last window. doing it on the last window will make the rest of the windows (explorer) open at the same size/position next time you open them.
i use this every time a window stretches beyond monitor's edge and mouse's reach.
if you have aero enabled, just drag the window to one of the desktop edges, the window will resize itself. for example, drag a window to the top edge, it will become maximized.
