Bodhi 5 - Will not open directory when saving document

Looking for help on this one...

Whenever running any software requiring opening a directory to either save or open a file I get an essentially blank page that is unreponsive.

An example would be when a libreoffice writer document is created and I go to save or save as... All I get is an almost completely blank screen with no directory.. It is unresponsive and ESC is the only way out of it.

The same happens if I start libreoffice and go to

This has also happened when trying to import a vpn file in openvpn.

I see now that ther proper screen opens but is much larger that the screen size. Is there any way to make the screen open at the proper screen size?

Any ideas? Thanks!

Just to be precise, are you saying that, when you click "Save" or "Save As," the resulting dialog does not show a list of directories from which to choose?

It turns out the screen that was coming up was a greatly enlarged directory screen. By dragging the screen and resizing it to the the size of the computer screen I was able to complete what I wanted to do. As luck would have it, Bodhi has a right click option to save a screen size so that it hopefully won't happen again.

Thanks to Albertaman for the right click option. Was moving a window around my screen that was too big (workable, but cumbersome). Followed directions
to resize screen and then found the right click option and found that the window is now much easier to use. Thanks so much.
