Resizing Windows

I was reading about resizing the screen with a Shift+Right click to resize. Now I want to cancel and go back to normal full screen, but I can't seem to beable to do that. What is the solution?

Right click on the "desktop" and select "Screen resolution". Then select your desired screen resolution. Also, it would help if you provide more details on what you tried to accomplish.

I guess I was wrong, It only does it when I click on a highlited site from the window that is open. It doesn't do that when you bring up another site. Does that make sense? I am new to the Windows and a new computer. I had XP for 6 years. I will quit trying things.

Trying new things helps discover, it's good as long as you have a backup.
