Restore maximized Fluxbox window to normal size


Hi friends:

I installed NeroLinux just recently. Being the newbie that I am, I
managed to accidentally maximize the window size so that the edges
of the window are right off the screen. I can't reach any of the
four corners to be able to resize the Nero window. Someone on
another forum kindly suggested I look for an entry for Nero in the
folders:

/home/mythtv/.fluxbox/apps

OR

/home/mythtv/.nero-whatever

I couldn't find anything there. The closest file I could find was:
/var/lib/menu-xdg/applications/menu-xdg/X-Debian-Apps-Tools-nerolinux.desktop

Here are the contents of that file:
Code:
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=NeroLINUX
GenericName=
Comment=NeroLINUX CD/DVD burning software
Icon=/usr/share/nero/pixmaps/nero.png
Exec=/usr/bin/nero
Terminal=false
Categories=X-Debian-Apps-Tools

Can anyone suggest a keyboard shortcut or something I can do to
restore the Nero window to a size that doesn't go off the screen?

Thank you kindly.

Hold the "alt" key and then drag the window until you see the bottom corner (left or right). Then, you'll be able to resize the window.
Once the window has the dimensions you want, right-click on the window top bar and choose Remember -> Dimensions.

Try dragging the window around with one of the other mouse buttons. One of them might let you do it without having to grab onto the window border.

That did the trick! Thanks so much Hammett, now I can focus on
burning DVDs instead of on window problems.

Thanks
