Windows Explorer doesnt resize or minimize

I'm having a problem with the windows explorer, I installed clover explorer onto my computer and didn't like it so I uninstalled it. Now whenever i open the explorer the windows is maximized to full screen and i cant minimize or re-size the window. Even when I try dragging it just automatically goes back to full screen.
