Sizing a Window with Maximize, Minimize, and Restore

A window can be maximized (made to fill the screen) or minimized (removed from the screen temporarily). To maximize a window, click its Maximize button (see Figure 4.1). When the window is already maximized, this button changes to the Restore button. Click this button to restore the window to its former size, revealing part of the Desktop. You might want a window to be maximized when you're concentrating on its application specifically. On the other hand, when you're working with more than one application at the same time, you might want to see all of their respective windows simultaneously. In that case, you will want to leave them at their restored size. To quickly maximize a window, double-click on its title bar. Then, to restore a window to its original size, double-click the title bar again.

The Minimize button removes the window from the Desktop without terminating (closing) its program. To restore the window so that you can start using the program again, click that program's button, which appears on the taskbar.
