Windows 10: Folders, and only folders, windows will not resize

    Folders, and only folders, windows will not resize

    When I open any desktop folder and try to resize it to a smaller size it goes to a small unusable size. From this size one can maximize or minimize the window but can not resize it. It also goes into a loop and when I close the window, my desktop and system tray icons temporarily blink off. This is clearly a problem with Windows so how do I adjust the settings for them?
    One can resize app windoes, PDF folders, Word and Excel folders for example. Just not any folders created by Windows 10

    It happens when the registry setting gets screwed up. It is from Automatic Windows resizing and docking in Ease of Access.
