    Hi, I'm not sure if I'm phrasing this right. I work on an external monitor connected to my macbook, set to 1920 resolution. I was using Itunes stretched out to fill the whole monitor at that resolution. Upon switching to the macbook, the itunes window is now too large when I switch to the macbook display. I can't even see the bottom right handle that you normally drag to resize the window.

    Clicking on the + button doesn't help, as it only shrinks Itunes to the mini player. How can I get itunes back to a smaller window size?

    Yes, I've had exactly the same problem. In other Apps, clicking the green button resizes the window, but of course, this doesn't work with iTunes. I think the only way around it that I found, was to reconnect the external monitor and resize it from there.

    Open a Terminal window and run:

    osascript -e 'tell application "iTunes" to set the bounds of the first window to {0, 22, 800, 600}'

    Option Click the green button will resize the window instead of reducing iTunes to the mini player.
