Windows 7: Live Mail ALWAYS Opens Maximized

24 May 2015   #11

Windows 7 Professional 32-bit SP1

Try the following (it worked for me) :
(1). Just click the upright button with the 2 orthogones (the middle one between 'Minimize' button and 'Close' button), to have finally the ONE Orthogon set there.
(2). Then Drag the WLM window from the Capture bar (the blue one at the top of the window) towards down and left.
(3). Using your mouse at the right vertical edge of the window, adjust the window's size to make it smaller.
(4). Arrange the window's size as you like and exit WLM 2011.

Next time you will open a received or sent e-mail the size of the window will be the one that you have sized.

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
I found a solution!

I know this is an old thread, but I had exactly this problem - until today.
Like appyface, I have a non-standard screen size/resolution, so that may be a factor.
Anyway, whilst messing around with Properties, I found a solution:

In the Compatibility tab, tick the box to run in compatibility mode, then set it for Windows 7.

No idea why this works, but it did for me.

Messages show up maximized in Windows Live Mail
No matter what I do, I cannot make the message that I want to read reduce in size. In Vista, I could set it do so so. Now, it is always full screen. I have tried to drag the corner to make it smaller--to no avail. Any ideas??? Thanks.
