mac window won't resize in Word


C

When I open a word doc in Word 2008, sometimes I can't change the size. Most recently I opened a file, and the new window was 3" square. The grab-tab on the lower right of the window does change when I click to drag it, but the window remains the same size. What's going on with this?

I think that's the second report I've seen of this, but don't recall a
solution.

Diagnostic tricks to help locate the cause of the problem:

1) Log out of your user account, then hold down shift while logging back
in. If the problem disappears, it is probably due to some conflict with
the login items/utilities in your user account.

2) create a new user account in OS X and test in that one. If the
problem disappears, then the installation is fine but some user-specific
file has corrupted.

I just solved this problem

Solution: Change screen resolution, change it back. Then resize MS Window


I use an external monitor and see this on occasion. It seems MS Word does no
detect that the resolution has changed and does something odd to windows. Mac

Fucking MS Word. What a jumbled mess of something that was once great.
