    Notes In Outlook 2002 Will Not Resize (10.4219.4219 SP-2)

    One of my customers tells me he is unable to resize Notes in Outlook. They open maximized and will not let him restore or otherwise reduce the size of the window. Any ideas what's happned and how to fix it?

    Does double clicking the grey bar at the top (what would be the title bar in an ordinary window) restore the note to normal size? If so, accidentally double clicking also caused the note to be maximized.

    And a right-click on that bar should also bring up the usual "Restore/Move/Size/Minimize/Maximize/Close" menu (or at least it does in OL2K).

    Thanks for your speedy response. Clicking the title bar and all the usual methods for resizing a window won't work. That's part of what we found so frustrating about this problem.

    Thanks for your suggestion. We've tried all the standard restore/resize tricks, nothing seems to work. These notes are now maximized and determined to stay that way. F.W.I.W., my customer says he didn't change anything in Outlook that would have caused the notes to resize. Another mystery.

    I can't help with the problem, but FWIW you can minimize a Notes Window via keyboard with Alt-F6.

    Sounds like time to try "Detect & Repar" (or its equivalent in 2002). In OL2K it's in the drop-down menu for Help. Also, have you had a hunt on MSKB for clues? Other than that, I'm out of ideas on this one.

    Tim,
    MSKB--first stop for all the good it does. And Tech Net, struck out on both that's why I came here. Additional info that came in today about this problem. Doesn't happen when he's logged in on another PC. When he goes back to his PC, the problem persists so there's something about his PC's set up that's causing this. I will try the Detect and Repair. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Also try this, edited as appropriate, in the Run box:

    "C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice 10OUTLOOK.EXE" /cleanviews
