    I migrated my account from a 24in iMac, and now the itunes window on my Macbook is so big and I can't find a way to minimize the window. It goes way below the dock window.

    If anyone can help, thanks!

    There are 3 ways to fix this. All of these require that iTunes not be running.

    1. Find and delete the iTunes preferences file.
    2. Use the Terminal, along with the defaults command, to edit the offending preference within the preference file to a more sensible value
    3. Same as #2, but using Property List Editor (requires installing the developer tools)

    That actually didn't work. It was still extra large after I deleted the pref file.

    I found something that did work, just in case someone else finds this problem.

    I changed the screen to 800/600 and the window was small again. Then just switched it back. Easy solution, but I'm glad I thought of it.

    There's a script that you can run in the script editor as well to change the window size. I had the same problem a while ago and found the script but I forgot where I found it.
