    Full Screen Open & Save As window

    Full Screen Save As Window

    I am using XP Home SP3.

    While I was working in Excel I opened a File>Save As and the resultant window opened completely full screen. I don't know why but it is most annoying. Can anyone help me return it to normal with a much smaller window that has the ability to be sized by using the cursor in the lower right corner.

    As I hunt further this affect also is in place in Word and also during the Open windows. It is not present in NotePad. The actual Excel or Word Windows are not full screen but act normally with the minimize, maximize, and close buttons at the upper right. The problem window has only a ? & close button.

    I have also posted this thread in Spreadsheets.

    Thanks in advance!

    Double-click the top title bar of the Save as window to restore its normal size (an inadvertent double-click there is probably how it got maximized in the first place).
