Outlook 2007 restore down to title bar only

I came in to work this morning to find that Outlook 2007 had minimized itself, and when I opened it all I could see was the title bar. Maximizing worked fine, but I like being able to drag and drop to the desktop, or move my Outlook window around. The normal resize in the corner wouldn't work either. After doing some digging I found a solution. Right-click on the title bar that is displayed, then choose "Size". That will let you resize the window back to how it should be. Maybe that's common knowledge, but I didn't have any idea so I'm guessing there are probably others out there that will eventually run into the problem too. Happy New Year too a few days late!

Excellent. I just encountered the same issue and didn't know how to resolve it. As you said, it might have been obvious, but I didn't think about the Size menu either. Your blog posting helped! Thx.

May thaks. Had the same thing happen and your method fixed it in a jiffy. Is it really well known? and Why does it happen anyway??

I don't think it happens very often, but it sure is a pain when it does. I'm glad the article was able to help you fix it. I'm not sure what causes it, but at least we know how to fix it.

I just had this problem this afternoon and had never seen it before. I'm out of another jam in record time. Like I say to anyone who asks, it's the people on the internet that make it such a totally rockin' place! Now if I could just get the internet to clean my basement... Thank you so very much.

Thanks!! This wasn't a major problem since I could still maximize outlook to see my information, but it was annoying since I like to resize outlook so I can see other applications as the same time. I found your blog and solution after spending about an hour trying to fix it myself. I will book make you site and start there the next time I have a problem.
