Win7 64bit pro
Running Classic Shell.

One thing that is so different from WinXP is that when I go file save-as the windows occupies the entire screen, I cant resize it at the corner despite the resize three faint bars there and getting a two way arrow, it wont budge, no resize icons top right work, , can't drag edges, nothing.

As such I cant see the subject underneath I need to refer to to give it an appropriate name, or in the current case, I am following a step by step and its giving me settings to use in saving a CAD file, and I now cant see these settings as I do the save it tells me to do.

I have been with PCs since the true floppy discs existed, yet have never come across such a cockup as win7, Classic shell has sorted out a number of issues but this is a real pain.

This is not related to Classic Shell but you can press Alt+Space and then move/resize options and use the keyboard arrow keys to move or resize windows. See How to resize a window using keyboard only in Windows 10 and other versions: ... -versions/

Links to some general topics:

Compare Start Menus

Read the Search box usage guide.

I am a Windows enthusiast and helped a little with Classic Shell's testing and usability/UX feedback.
