Hi,
I can't seem to resize windows in Illustrator. The windows open too large so the red, green, and yellow buttons aren't visible (they are off the screen) so I can't minimize or maximize the window. The bottom right corner of the window is missing the three 45 degree lines (see image below), so I can't resize that way either.

I've tried changing the resolution (I'm maxed out at 1440 x 900), I've tried using zoom, I've tried command +, I've restarted, I've said many bad words, and have searched and searched but can't find an answer.

Any help would be greatly appreciated - it's super frustrating.
Thanks.

It worked!

Thanks so much silentpanda - it worked! And this whole time I was using F to start my swearing.

What does the 'F' command do in Illustrator anyway?
