Windows 7: Open Window Sizing Issue

Open Window Sizing Issue

I was doing something on pc last night and something in my browser settings abruptly changed. The customized settings reverted back to basic, and my Windows Aero quit. I ran the Aero Troubleshooter, it didn't find anything, and then all of a sudden everything seemed fine again. EXCEPT, when I'm on Facebook and want to attach something to a comment, hit the camera icon, and the 'Open' window doesn't open correctly anymore. It isn't as wide, irregardless if it's Downloads, Pictures, or Barracuda Storage (D:).
For example, when I would go to the Open window for Barracuda Storage (D:) it would open wider showing rows with 5 Thumbnails across. I haven't changed the size of anything, and the settings are still set on Large Icons.
Can someone please help me out here?... I hope I've explained this with reasonable clarity.

These photo attachments didn't open in the order I had hoped-

Geeez!... Think we figured it out. When the window is brought up, simply rt. click up in the left hand corner of pane, and there is a size option that allows you to drag to suitable size. Sorry for bothering anyone about this.
I have no idea how it changed, other than it had something to do with the timing of the Windows Aero glitch.
We went into Safe Mode With Networking and ran AdwrCleaner, JRT, Eset Online Scanner, and Malwarebytes. They all came up clean.

Dual-Monitor wallpaper sizing issue
Hi everyone, I'm having a small problem in W7, and that is the two screens I am using have different resolutions & aspect ratios (1680x1050 and 1920x1080). The problem is my second screen wallpaper stays the same size as my main monitor (1680x1050) instead of filling the entire area. I've tried...
