Cannot re size the iTunes Window

Discussion in 'Apple/Mac' started by RecalcitrantRon, Aug 7, 2009.

  1. So I open up iTunes for the first time on my MacBook and the window is so big, that the size adjustment corner is off the bottom of the screen while the top of the window is as high as it can go. Normally, you would just hit the green plus button, but in iTunes that makes a mini player appear. Any idea how to adjust the window?

    I figured it out. I decreased the screen resolution to get the entire window on the screen. Then resided the window to make is smaller. Then reset the screen resolution.

    This is one of my pet peeves with the Apple OS. In Windows, you can grab any corner or any edge of a window to resize it. Apple needs to do this, too.

    Go to your system preferences, choose displays, and change the screen resolution to a smaller size. In my case I had just added a different display - a 1920x1080. So I picked 1600x1200. Once I had the window small enough to fit the screen, I changed the display back to the native resolution.

    Yep that's what he said he did :tongue:

    As much as I love Apple there are some things sometimes that could work like they're supposed to, or like you'd want them to.
  5. I just don't understand what can only be characterized as a stubborn refusal to allow windows to be resized from any side or at least corner. Clearly OSX has the capability to do this so why not do it?

    Maybe Snow Leopard …*nah don't think so
  7. It's after the fact, and not a substitution for resize-anywhere functionality, but: all well-behaved OS X apps should have a "Zoom" menu item in their "Window" menu that will resize the frontmost window to the full screen size. This will also have the effect of zooming down if it's too big to fit on the window.

    Saves a trip to the System Prefs at least.
