Sizing a Window with Maximize, Minimize, and Restore

You may want to increase the size of a window to see its full contents, or you may want to decrease a window to a button on the taskbar in order to make room for other windows. One way to resize a window is to use the Maximize, Minimize, and Restore commands found on the Control menu. If you use the mouse, you will use the Maximize, Minimize, and Restore buttons located at the right end of the window's title bar. The Restore button and the Maximize button will appear interchangeably on the title bar of a window. For example, if you maximize a window, the Restore button replaces the Maximize button and you can then minimize or Restore a window (see Figure 2.3). If you restore a window, the Maximize button replaces the Restore button. Figure 2.3 displays the title bar of a maximized window, and Figure 2.4 displays the title bar of a restored window.

Figure 2.3. When a window is maximized, the Restore button replaces the Maximize button.
