Outlook Express message Window size

  g0slp 09:26 01 Apr 2003

Running W98, OE5.

Something's changed on my system, & it's annoying the life out of me! When I open a message, the window in which it opens is quite small, & I have to manually expand it. Note that this is NOT the Preview pane, which is not used as part of good AV practice.

As I say, this has just started, & I've tried searching for the solution without success this morning. I'm sure that someone on this forum can direct me to the answer.

Needless to say, nobody in the g0slp household is admitting tweaking anything.........

Thanks in advance

I want the message window to be full size on opening a message.

Drag the window out from the corners to the size that you want, and it should open in this size each time, mine does.

Hi Andsome, great response time.

I tried that before, but it didn't work. Have just tried it again after a restart, & it seems to be OK.

Weird things, these machines!

Thanks again. Think I'll run SFC etc now, just to be sure all is well inside the machine.

I'll not tick the box yet, just in case it's still not 100%.

Still don't know why the thing kept reducing in size.

Cheers again
