My terminal app is like 15x15 pixels. I cannot maximize it nor resize it with the bottom right tab thingy.

What the heck can I do to fix this?

Its impossible to do anything in the terminal now and I have no clue how this happened just launched it one day and voila, nice and small.

Try clicking on Terminal and select Window Services. Then select Window and see if the rows and columns is correct - although I can't personally change it to anything less than 10 columns and 5 rows. (Edit: like Mitthrawnuruodo said)

Also, try moving your Library/Preferences/com.apple.Terminal.plist and relaunching.

That is the best thing I have seen all day. It will be trumped in about 5 minutes when the new girl I am dating gets here! :p

Window Zoom just moves the terminal to a different x,y location from the original location....no help.

Changing the window dimensions does not help either.

Also moving that preference so a new one will be created does not work either.


would like this fixed...
