    better open dialogue (2000)

    I've just upgraded to Word 2000 and a flat-panel, 1280 x 1024 monitor.

    And now the file open dialogue seems very small, and it can't be resized. Why does Notepad have a better open dialogue than Word?

    Is there an add-in, work-around or other way to get a better, bigger open dialogue in Word 2000?

    Re: better open dialogue (2000)

    You might try looking at this thread. The Office common dialogs (such as File Open) are written differently from the default Windows ones. Prior to WIndows 2000, the main freeware for resizing common dialogs specifically did not work with Office programs. If you have all that spare screen real estate, one workaround is dragging and dropping your files from Windows Explorer into the Word GUI. HTH
