    Hello everyone
    Once again I have a problem,nothing big,but a real irritation. We have a laptop with Windows7 and Chrome and one of the newer Internet explorers,probably 8 or 9. Things are always changing. We couldn't open our Yahoo mail for quite awhile,but now that straightened out. Now the Google and Yahoo search windows are very short and I can't find any answer to fix it. I tried reinstalling them and that didn't work. On my other laptop with Windows XP,it was possible to put the cursor on the edge of the search window and two little arrows would appear which would allow the border to be lengthened by dragging the edge. That has disappeared on my Windows XP but,thankfully,the search windows on that computer are the right size. We have AVG antivirus and Malwarebytes which are used regularly. I think it is just something with the darn Chrome or the newer IE. I would appreciate any suggestions.
    Thank You

    How about a screen shot to show us what you mean? If you need help with that see TSG Posting a Screenshot. FWIW to take screen shots with Windows 8 or 7 or Vista I prefer to use the built-in Snipping Tool.
