    I am a first time Mac user with a new 17" MBP and I am having issues resizing some windows, notably movie videos. I would open up a movie and it opens up in a huge window so I am not able to see the bottom right hand corner to resize. I tried checking quick time settings to see if I could change that but its a no go. So my question is, is there another way to resize videos/files/windows besides the bottom right hand corner?

    Thanks in advanced

    Kent, UK - the 'Garden of England'.

    Try clicking the green blob, top left. That should fit the window to the size of the content you're viewing - hopefully it'll still keep the controls on-screen.

    I've tried that and it just doesn't do anything. the width of the movie is fine, its just the length that wont/can't change.

    I first noticed it when I dl'd iRecord to try it out. The movie was saved to my desktop and it was huge. I opened up some other movies/clips that I had saved and some are regular size and some are huge as well.

    also, in Quicktime, :apple:-3, resizes the window to "Fit to Screen" or something like that...
