Do you find the dialogue windows (such as the Save As or Open windows) that open when you use a feature in the MS Office Suite programs to be too small?
Wish you had a way to maximize them?
Then consider your wish granted! Well, sort of. Actually, consider your wish granted a few times!
There are a few dialogue windows that can be maximized to fill your screen, which is very helpful in windows with a lot of items listed. More space equals more items listed, without the need to scroll.
The thing is though, you probably never thought you could maximize them, because there are no buttons next to the Close icon, indicating that a size change is possible.
To see if it is possible, all you have to do is double click the title bar of the window. If it can be maximized, a quick double click will do the trick.
Changed your mind? You don’t want it to be maximized? No problem! Just double click on the title bar again and the window will return to its original size.
I checked out several different windows and found this works with the Save As, Open and Insert Symbol windows. It seems to me those are good places for this type of feature. They are windows that often have long lists displayed within them and the larger the display area, the less chance you’ll need to scroll through items to find what you need.
I’m positive there are other windows that will work too, but you’ll just have to see. Just give it a try with any window you feel needs a size change!
