    My iTunes library is on an external drive, and I borrowed a macbook pro for this trip. The last time I opened iTunes was on my 24" iMac, so the window was pretty big. Now that I opened it on the macbook, with a 15" screen, the bottom is just not on the screen and I have no way to read the corner to scale it down. It stays like this even if I quit and restart. :(:(:(

    Any help is appreciated!

    Okay my bad, I literally figured this out right when I posted this.
    All you have to do is switch screen resolutions to a smaller size, hit the maximize button on the window and it rescales to fit that resolution. Switch back to your native resolution and the window is back to normal.

    Just in case someone else encounters this... Not that they will. :p

    The easiest way to fix this doesn't involve changing resolutions. Just click the green button while holding down the Option key.

    Thank you. I think you just saved me a call to Apple Care.
