Don't know what happened. I was using Scite4AutoIt3 and commented a block.  The editor went full screen with no caption bar. I copied the entire scite folder from AutoIt3 install from another machine where it's working properly. No joy. Uninstall/reinstall no getting it back. I assume it's got some stupid setting in the registry to take up all the desktop.  Anyone know how to get it so I can resize it again? Hitting F11 only covers and uncovers the TaskBar.

Man what a waste of time! I've been screwing with this for 2 hours now.

Nope.  It's bizarre because there seems to be no command to go out of full screen mode.  I changed global properties back.  The width and height got changed to -1 like when it's first installed.  Made no difference. Copied the folder from my other machine. I don't understand hiding the caption bar. What can you fit one more line of text?  It's almost like it's booby trapped.

I dunno'.  I stuck the mouse pointer off the top of the screen and double-clicked. I got the caption bar back.  Then I could resize.  But it still won't open to the size and positions in the global properties file. It just opens to the last position when closed. Weird.

Edit: NirCmd came in handy. I used the 'win' command to set the window position and size to match the setting in the global properties file.  At least for the moment it opens in the size and position I want.  Turns out I could have used my own rap.exe (run and position) to do the same thing.  Been so long since I used it I totally forgot the name of the thing.   embarassed

btw-I removed Run And Place Utilities. There are other apps that do it better. I was new to AutoIt3 at the time and the command line params are just a mess. Not worth fixing. smiley


Don't know what that "full screen" feature is about but I don't want to find out either. smiley
