    Cannot size Word application (O97(SR2), on NT4 (SP5).)

    Scenario:
    Word open as the only application.
    Either:
    Double click on top blue band, or
    Click on top right corner middle button (the one with the two pages superimposed),
    ......will make the application DISAPPEAR from the screen.
    Surprisingly enough, the button on the bottom task bar shows the application "embossed", as active.
    When I right click on bottom in task bar, I can "rescue" the document by maximizing.
    In other MS apps. (Excel, for instance), clicking the blue band is for me an easy way to quickly maxi / minimize.
    There seems something strange here.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi Daniel,

    It sounds like Word is opening off the desktop in a Restored window.

    You can use a couple of different techniques to get the window back into view. First open another task, then right-click an empty area of the Task Bar and select Cascade. This is usually enough to bring the window back into view.

    If that doesn't work then right-click the Word task and select "Move". On your keyboard press one of the arrow keys to lock in the move command, then move your mouse around the desktop and hopefully you can move it back to the desktop. Once its in view, click the left mouse button to anchor it.

    If that method doesn't work, let us know and we can go from there.

    Hi BAM
    Yes!
    I tried the "cascading" of windows and it worked.
    Thanks again.
