    Tiny Windows! (XP)

    I use Windows XP Professional and Office XP Professional. Suddenly today I'll have a window opened (either the browser, Outlook Express, or any Office program) and maximized as I do with everything. I walk away from the computer or take a telephone call, go back to the computer and most of those windows have shrunk to about 4x7. I seem to remember going through an automatic update in the past few days and wonder if that caused it or if someone is aware of anything else that would cause this, and how I can fix it.

    Thanks.

    Window sizes and states are stored in the registry. Are you views staying the way you set them now, or do they constantly forget and reopen in the smaller size?

    They seem to forget. And even when they open normal size, the seem to go back to being small even though I dont' touch them and in fact the computer is idle

    Two posts for you to look at and try:
    <UL><LI>Post 252256, Making Folder Views Stick
    <LI>Post 296162, Folder View[/list]These aren't specific to what you're describing, but they deal directly with window controls and preferences.
