    Resizing File Explorer Window


    When I open File Explorer the window opens maximized and will not let me resize it. The minimize (-) and close (x) buttons work ok but the center button doesn't do anything when picked. I am new to windows 10, my old system was XP. Any help/ideas would be appreciated.

    Hello windazed55, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    It sounds like you have tablet mode turned on. Turning tablet mode off should sort this for you.
