    Open etc dialog box problems (XP)

    I clicked on the full screen button for the Open dialog box in Word. Now I can't reduce it back as there is no restore box next to the close and help (question mark) boxes. How do I get out of jail? I presume a little work with the Registry is called for.

    Thanks in advance

    Double click the title bar of the open dialog. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Thank you. Red faces all round - but why isn't there the full complement of boxes at the top right of the common dialog boxes when full screen? (that's a rhetorical question aimed at Redmond, by the way).

    Dialog windows by definition don't have minimize and maximize buttons. Originally, they weren't resizable, so they weren't needed, but Microsoft added this capability in XP. The "look" is still the same, however.
