Exchange Servers >> Why full screen only?

my copy of vfp 9 sp1 has suddenly decided it will only run full
screen. Restarting vfp, restarting computer don't change the
behavior.

I assume I inadvertantly changed a setting, but I can't find it.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

I should have thought of that, but doesn't help.

Exchange Servers >> Why full screen only? More details of problem:

vfp starts minimized. Clicking the icon in the task bar does
nothing. To open, I must right click and choose maximize (the only
option available other than minimize and close.) When open, if I
click the resize box (that is the box between close and minimize, it
minimizes.

Exchange Servers >> Why full screen only? Take a look at the properties for the Screen

See if the MaxButton property go set to .F. somehow. If it did, then set it
to .T. which is the default.

When I set it to .F. I was able to get something like the behavior that you
specified.

Take a look in the VFP registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualFoxPro\<VERSION>\Desktop

What settings do you have for height, width, and zoom?

George,

VFP desktop Left and Top properties in the registry got set to the big
negative values somehow. It saw it happens to other applications as
well. To fix the problem, set Left and Top from the command window

_VFP.Left = 0
_VFP.Top = 0

Exchange Servers >> Why full screen only? This was it! (Or I should say it fixed the problem. I didn't look in
the registry.)

Thanks to all.
