I managed to make a window slightly bigger than the screen, and now I can't access the 'handle' in the lower right corner to return the window to normal size.

I was using screen sharing from another computer and some strange things were happening, and I ended up with my iTunes window a little bigger than the displayable area on the screen. If I move the window up as high as possible (so that it's up against the menu bar), the bottom edge is just hanging off the bottom of the screen, just far enough that I can't grab the resizing handle. Anyone know how I can resize this window to a normal size?

Nevermind. Fixed. I changed the screen resolution settings (display preferences), and that bumped the window down to the displayable area, then I could resize it (which may not have even been necessary) and set the screen settings back up.

Push the green plus button to resize it?

Tried that, but all it did was toggle to the compact display (because it's iTunes), which resizes separately and differently. Green button again put me right back where I started.

Hi

I use a dual display at work and have one large and one smaller screen. I managed to drag an app window from the large to the small and both vertical edges were out of view including the close / resize buttons DOH!

I got over it by temporarily selecting Displays -> mirror displays

*Note to self = Don't do that again!
