I am running Windows 98. When I have application windows floating in the "Restore" setting, as opposed to minimised or maximised, Windows does not set the bottom of the widow to conform with the size of the screen. The window extends below the bottom of the screen, and when I scroll down as far as I can, I still can't get to the bottom of the window, so I can't get to the bottom to resize it by dragging it up . How much I miss depends on the size of the window, or the page if I am viewing a web page. The only way I can see the missing part is by maximising the window. Often when I do that I see that a third to a half (or more) of the window or page had been obscured.

Click restore, this should make the window smaller. Then on the titlebar line when you get the double arrow, click and drag it down to a smaller size. Then click on the titlebar itself and drag the whole window up. Repeat this until you get to the bottom of the screen, at which time you can resize it the way you wish.

OK thanks Doyce, now it will be easier to live with the problem. But what I am really hoping to do is solve the problem. The OS should restore windows to a size that is smaller than the screen - I shouldn't have to manually resize a window every time I open IE.

"I shouldn't have to manually resize a window every time I open IE."

You will not have to, as long as you drug the window to the full size of the screen it will open to that size from now on.

I meant this old Dell XPS P60
not me
some of these pages take half a min or so to load.
Maybe a bit more ram might help.

Still i'll try anything...
