    reducing calculator screen


    My calculator screen takes up every corner! I can't even see the right hand corner that has the prompts, it is very
    irritating since I have to leave my work to access the calculator (guess I have extra equipment on the desk) Can someone help PLEASE ?

    When you say the calculator takes up every corner, does it look like my screenshot? If yes, can you click on the minimize/maximize icon (middle icon in upper right corner)? Do you see the word "Calculator" in upper left corner? If yes, you could try right-clicking > minimize.

    I can not see the upper right hand corner prompts! and I don't know how to reduce. Left hand corner has 3 horizontal lines, and bond print ​STANDARD

    See if this helps:

    You could also try clicking on "minimize" if "size" is grayed out or otherwise not active.

    marsmimar, I appreciate your efforts to correct this, but it isn't the sides making the screen too big, it's the very top, where "calculator" is in left hand corner, and the three prompts in right hand corner, (where you have the red arrow pointing, I can't see that corner)

    OK, here's more... I pushed mouse cursor up to the top, "calculator" is shown, but the right hand corner only has the "close" button, no size adjustment prompt appears, even if I pass the mouse over the area.

    When you type Alt+spacebar do you get the pop up menu? Can you minimize? Can you post screenshot of what the calculator screen looks like? Sorry for my confusion.

    Just to clarify, you have to hold down the Alt key while clicking the spacebar. That should let you click on "size" which will change the cursor to the 4-pointed compass. Then you should be able to follow the steps in my post # 4 above.

    There are several ways to post a screenshot. This tutorial explains how:
