Folders opening maximised no way to adjust

  martd7 19:23 24 Aug 2018

Some of my folders inside a program are opening maximised with just the red cancel cross in top right corner,no minimise or normal icon just the red cross

It's not every program just some,I have uninstalled and reinstalled the programs but still when opening files it opens maximized with just the red shutdown cross

Anyone point me in the right direction to solving this

Open one of these Windows and try hitting F11, or possibly F12.

Have you run the system file checker? Not sure of your OS but on 8 onward you can run DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth in CMD as admin. Worth a try.

Anything in Folder Options? You could try restoring to defaults there.
