    Can't resize apps except to minimize or maximize


    A few days ago, the windows for my apps stopped allowing me to resize them. I can minimize or maximize the windows, but nothing in between.

    Hi MBG, welcome to the Ten Forums.

    You might have accidentally turned the Tablet Mode on, that would explain the behavior you described.. If this is the case please see this tutorial: Tablet Mode - Turn On or Off in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Windows 10 auto-upgrade totally jacked up my computer. NOT in tablet mode, but cannot resize window except to go to full screen. Tried toggling tablet mode and rebooting. No luck. Also clicks through window to pickup icons on desktop. And opens a half dozen windows in chrome. This all started immediately following Windows 10 auto-update. Windows 10 SUCKS. Wasting my Saturday trying to fix these Microsoft created problems.
