Double-Click Windows Titlebar to Quickly Maximize or Resize a Window

A very short but useful tip this week. If you need to quickly resize a Window, remember that double-clicking the Titlebar of any Window (the horizontal part of a window across the top where the name of the document and applications usually appears) will toggle it between full screen size (the same as Maximize) and its former size (the same as Restore). If you want to resize a window the Titlebar is a bigger target than the caption buttons. Unfortunately this trick doesn’t work on a Mac.


  1. I’m using Win7 with a 26″ screen. I’d like to know how to DISABLE this “feature”. Very annoying when I try to move a windows and it goes full-screen !
